Richard Durrant

Richard Durrant studied guitar, cello and composition at the Royal College of Music since when he has forged his own highly individual career.

Best known for his lively and entertaining guitar concerts Durrant has won devoted fans throughout Europe - his sheer virtuosity and uncategorisable repertoire earning him a unique place in the world of the guitar.

Alongside his concert work Durrant is a busy recording artist and broadcaster. He is also a successful composer of television and concert music, works regularly as record producer and is recognised as a true multi-instrumentalist who has recorded and broadcast on mandolins, bazoukis, bodhran, cello and double bass

Richard played lead guitar with Sky during their last national tour and still performs regularly with the undefinable Herbie Flowers, playing a mixture of original material, classical and jazz.

In October 2002, as recognition of his work promoting art in the community, Durrant was presented with a Daily Mail Golden Jubilee Award by HRH Prince Charles.
