Richard Durrant: Music for midsummer
Join guitarist, composer and ukulele virtuoso Richard Durrant and enjoy his trademark blend of original guitar music, British flavoured folk, Bachs played on the uke and plenty of tales from the road.
This event is part of a tour that celebrates the release of Richard’s new album, ‘Rewilding’. Starting his musical pilgrimage in Orkney, Richard will cycle through the UK, performing en route. His reason for this unusual way of touring: ‘This is my way of reducing my carbon footprint whilst playing music in some wonderful places and drawing attention to the climate crisis’.
Be part of Richard’s musical pilgrimage and join him at the National Centre for Early Music for a fantastic performance.
