The musical Dr Who
A MUSIC maestro, hailed as a leading concert guitarist of his generation, visits Malton next month with a brand-new show for 2013.
Local music fans can see 50-year-old Richard Durrant in action at The Milton Rooms on Saturday, February 2, at 7.45pm.
A special treat for the young-at-heart will be Durrant’s nostalgic 10th-anniversary tribute to the late Freddie Phillips.
Phillips died in 2003, but his guitar music lives on in the accompaniment to the BBC TV trilogy of programmes Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley.
Richard Durrant is a world-class virtuoso with an imaginative flair for presentation and a warm and easy rapport.
This has endeared him to audiences not only across the UK, but also in Europe and South America.
The Sussex-based musician’s 2013 UK tour unveils a new show packed with stories and music from a lifetime of playing the guitar.
Using the most intriguing musical stepping stones, Durrant is described a cross between Marco Polo and Dr Who as he strides across continents and centuries with breathtaking agility.
Besides the Freddie Phillips tribute, audiences can also expect to hear a classical repertoire featuring music from JS Bach and Django Reinhardt, and music from Venezuela and Paraguay.
And no Richard Durrant concert would be complete without his show stopping interpretation of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells.
Advance tickets for Richard Durrant’s gig at the Milton Rooms are now available.
