Richard Durrant – Music For Midsummer
Richard Durrant has performed tirelessly since his graduation from the Royal College of Music & London debut in 1986. He plays c.70 concerts each year at home and abroad and has written, arranged and discovered much new guitar repertoire. Performing, composing, promoting music literacy and breaking down musical barriers has been his life’s work.
Richard will be visiting Bethesda Chapel, Narberth High St. on 6th June where audiences can expect to hear JS Bach’s 3rd Cello Suite played in its entirety on the ukulele, British folk melodies played on Tenor Guitar and a number of Durrant originals on concert guitar.
Richard says: “I want to use these gigs to explore the real meaning of midsummer – and surely there’s no better way to do this than playing music and meeting people”.
Last year Richard cycled his concerts from the cathedral on Orkney all the way to the Sussex coast, including a live performance on BBC Radio 3 from the centre of Sherwood Forest. He also released his first double album Stringhenge, The Richard Durrant Orchestra gave its debut performance and Richard played ukulele for Prince Charles’ birthday at Buckingham Palace.
More from the maverick guitarist: “People don’t tend to stop for midsummer, but I still hope to bring a moment of stillness and peace to people as we live through the very centre of the year and experience the summer solstice together.”
Richard’s adventures have allowed him to dip in and out of the worlds of classical, folk, world and jazz. His honesty and passion for music pervades everything he chooses to do and audiences across the world are charmed by his spirit.
Come and join us for what is set to be a night of fine music from one of the best!
