Richard Durrant, the UK’s only barefoot, stand-up, un-classical guitarist, is bringing his Christmas concert tour to Halesworth next week.

Delivering an eclectic show incorporating sounds, imagery, and commissioned artwork in a prismatic display that can best be described as an “everyman’s performance”, Durrant’s programmes are aimed at the popular as well as the fine.

And the UK’s busiest touring, virtuoso guitarist is now embarking on his annual, always-magical, candlelit Christmas concerts.

This year’s Christmas tour has even more sparkle as it includes music from Richard’s album, Christmas Guitars, featuring guest vocalist Amy Kakoura and the unmistakable voice of Barry Cryer.

The audience is promised both a musical and visual feast, with beautifully presented wintry music enhanced by specially commissioned projected imagery, tales from the road and lots of candles.

The concert is at the New Cut, Halesworth, on Thursday, December 11, at 7.30pm.

Tickets £12, from the box office on 0845 673 2123.
