My new favourite guitarist…Richard Durrant sits completely outside the accepted genres.  He has a peculiar and wonderful mind.  

Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

Critically acclaimed guitarist and composer Richard Durrant returns to the Stables as part of his popular 27-day Music for Midsummer tour 2022.

At this concert Richard will play his Sussex downland inspired “The Crest, The Coombe, The Twitten” and the richly melodic “Book of Spells” on a concert guitar made from a 5,000 year old English oak. 

You will also hear unaccompanied Bach played on a ukulele made from cedar rescued from the Oregon “Biscuit Fire”. 

Now in its eighth year, Richard’s 2022 musical pilgrimage takes him from the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral on Orkney, through the UK to Brighton Open Air Theatre for midsummer and further concerts in Sussex and Kent. Once again, to reduce his carbon footprint, Richard will be travelling between venues by bicycle carrying his instruments on a trailer.

To coincide with the tour a new album “The Sleep of a King” will be launched. Like much of Richard’s music this collection of original guitar solos is inspired by the landscape of the British Isles.

Says Richard: “The intense joy I feel performing live can only be enhanced by sharing the stage each night with my bicycle!”

“Richard’s album Rewilding is beyond beautiful.”  Isabella Tree, best selling author
