With bicycles as lighting stands and a stage set carried in panniers, this will be a truly intriguing concert of beautiful guitar music.
Richard Durrant is a world class performer traveling in excess of 35,000 miles each year. As a concert guitarist he finds it impossible to do anything but cast a carbon footprint as large as his musical status. But now its pay back time.
During May and June Richard, the leading guitarist of his generation, will play at UK venues great and small during a seven-week, 1,000-mile odyssey that will be the last word in eco-friendliness. Cycling up to 50 miles a day, Richard will be carrying his entire show on his bike. Each performance will still feature beautiful lighting, projections and sound, but the gear will be state of the art, low energy and lightweight. Richard will be performing a selection of guitar solos, many from his latest album Cycling Music.
