THIS EVENT IS ON FRIDAY 10TH MAY (brought forward from Sat. 18th May)
The English guitarist Richard Durrant is a world class virtuoso with an imaginative flair for presentation and a warm and easy rapport that has endeared him to audiences in the UK, Europe and South America.
His 2013 UK tour brings a new show packed full of stories and music from a lifetime of playing the guitar.
Using the most intriguing musical stepping stones – Durrant strides across continents and centuries like a possessed, guitar wielding Dr Who.
The guitar is a chameleon – especially in these capable hands.
Expect to hear JS Bach, Django Reinhardt, music from Venezuela and Paraguay, and a special 10th anniversary tribute to Freddie Phillips with music from Trumpton, Camberwick Green & Chigley.
Add to the mix Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells and you will see why Richard is the greatest guitarist of his generation.

This event is brought forward from 18th May to prevent the clash with the John Williams (guitarist) gig at the Eastbourne Town Hall. Irony, as both are very good friends, and Richard replaced John when he retired from the group Skyy.
