Concert guitarist and composer Richard Durrant is celebrated as one of the great performers of the music of Agustin Barrios in the world today. He has been honoured in Paraguay for his work.

Richard performs on concert guitar, tenor guitar, ukulele and a variety of other instruments.

They have just returned from the album launch in Asuncion Paraguay and are touring England for one week only.”

Dates include: June 15 – Open Air theatre Brighton; June 16 – Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells; June 18 – Christ Church, Sayers Common. Sussex; and June 20 – Stables Theatre, Milton Keynes.
