About the Event

Critically acclaimed guitarist and composer Richard Durrant will open his Hailsham Festival solo concert with Bach’s entire 3rd Cello Suite played on a humble ukulele. He will also play his Sussex Downland inspired suite “The Crest, The Coombe, The Twitten” and the richly melodic “Book of Spells” – both played on a concert guitar made from a 5,000-year-old English oak. There’ll also be music from his latest album “The Sleep of a King” plus a generous serving of guitar favourites and plenty of tales from the road…


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

Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

“He takes to the stage like El Cid…his virtuosity almost cinematic in scale.”

Brighton Argus

“Richard’s album Rewilding is beyond beautiful.”

Isabella Tree, best-selling author
