In his latest offering ‘STRINGHENGE’ (double album releasing September 2018), Shoreham composer and guitar virtuoso Richard Durrant is once again living on the folk/classical cusp with the first of these two L.Ps featuring a collection of solo instrumentals. The un-categorisable Durrant chose to record on a concert guitar crafted from a 5,000 year old English Oak by Gary Southwell, a four string Tenor Guitar made in Ditchling by Ian Chisholm (decorated with a silver Uffington Horse) and a humble ukulele. This style of guitar playing could be described as “English Folk Baroque” with echoes of Renbourn and Jansch.
Go and see Richard Durrant perform live to hear his unbelievable, top drawer, solo guitar playing. If you’re lucky you may even get an explanation as to why a catchy little track on side four of his double album is called “Frank Bough’s Allemande”. All is not as it first appears in the world of Richard Durrant, certainly not on Stringhenge! Photo Credit Kris Pawlowski
