CONCERT guitarist and composer Richard Durrant is coming to Pickering as part of his Stringhenge album launch tour.

The 10-date tour starts at St Magnus Cathedral, Orkney, and finishes in Sussex. Richard will cycle between each concert on this three-week, 1,000-mile, musical adventure and will play British folk music, Durrant originals and music by J S Bach.

He said: “I’m lucky to be playing what I believe to be the world’s most beautiful concert guitar.

“It was made from 5,000-year-old English Oak by the Lincolnshire Luthier Gary Southwell and the instrument feels like a sacred object.

“You will also hear my four-string tenor guitar (the Uffington Tenor by Ian Chisholm) and a ukulele set aside purely for the music of J S Bach.”

He will be at Pickering Memorial Hall on June 10.
