composer scribbles

Richard Durrant is emerging from his studio where he’s been buried in notes writing his new concerto: Six Grooves for Ukulele. But he’s looking forward to a fantastic season ahead. Here’s his update…

May has been a month for composing and it’s racing past – the only sunlight I’ve seen is when I’ve jumped on my bike for inspiration. But now I look to the start of my Summer Concerts; a mixture of Stringhenge (the first next Friday 26th May at Theatr Clwyd, Mold) and then a short run of gigs with the fantastic Mr Ledesma.

Yes, Ismael, one of the leading Paraguayan harpists of all time is returning to our shores for a weeks’ tour. Together we’ll be playing music from our new album Durrant y Ledesma which we launched in Paraguay last month.

If you didn’t see us last time you must try and come along – these gigs are something different! We start with an open air show at the Brighton Open Air Theatre on 15th June and finish at The Stables in Milton Keynes on 20th June. 

I hope to see you soon and I hope the sun is shining on us all by then!
