There is no other guitar concert on tour anywhere in the world quite like Richard Durrant’s Guitar Whisperer.  It begins with a Paraguan Dance Suite and a stunning arrangement of Debussy’s Arabesque. and continues with Richard’s unique solo take on Mike  Oldfield’s Tubular Bells played to footage of the Apollo Moon Landings, JS Bach on the humble Ukulele and Falla’s La Vide Breve with Miranda Vincent’s Goya inspired film. There’s also the story of the earliest surviving guitar by CF Martin I told with a musical twist

A spellbinding musical voyage which has the press raving last time on tour…

"The last few decades have seen the emergence of whole schools of very clever young guitarists. All comparisons are futile, just be sure to make a date with Richard Durrant wherever he is, and whatever the weather. You will not see his like anywhere else."
Newbury Weekly News, 2010

“Extraordinary virtuosity… A simply unmissable treat.”
