Richard Durrant A Candlelit Christmas Guitar Concert with special guests: Amy Kakoura – vocals and Nick Pynn – violin
When Richard Durrant’s Candlelit Christmas Tour comes to town you know that the festive season has really begun. And Richard Durrant can be trusted to bring a particular Christmas magic, playing seasonal music from the Folk, Pagan and Christian traditions. His show could never be described as a commercial, tinselly affair - instead it is an intriguingly honest blend of wintry acoustic, classical and original music.
Composer and guitarist Richard has recently appeared on BBC Radio3 and BBC6 Music, he’s also played this year at Beautiful Days Festival, Buckingham Palace and countless other venues through the UK and mainland Europe. For his Candlelit Concerts he is joined by the sublime and hugely talented singer/songwriter Amy Kakoura and master fiddler/multi-instrumentalist Nick Pynn.
Says Richard: “I hope that our audiences will feel they have made contact with the magic of midwinter. Us three musicians love playing these shows and it really does feel like Christmas onstage. Please come and join us!”
