Critically-acclaimed guitarist and composer Richard Durrant starts his popular 27-day Music for Midsummer tour in the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral in Orkney.

At this concert Richard will play his Sussex downland inspired "The Crest, The Coombe, The Twitten" and the richly melodic "Book of Spells" on a concert guitar made from a 5,000 year old English oak.

You will also hear unaccompanied Bach played on a ukulele made from cedar rescued from the Oregon "Biscuit Fire".

Now in its eighth year, Richard's 2022 musical pilgrimage takes him from the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral in Orkney, through the UK to Brighton Open Air Theatre for the summer solstice and further concerts in Sussex and Kent.

Once again, to reduce his carbon footprint, Richard will be travelling between venues by bicycle carrying his instruments on a trailer.

Tickets can be bought online via Richard's website or are available at the door priced £15 for adults and £5 for U18s.

To coincide with the tour a new album "The Sleep of a King" will be launched. Like much of Richard's music this collection of original guitar solos is inspired by the landscape of the British Isles.
