Woirld class, virtuoso guitarist Richard Durrant is undertaking a 1,000-mile Cycling Music UK tour on a bike.
What started as a bid to cut down how carbon footprint has become an enormous challenge for Richard who will cycle between concert venues.
The tour starts at Shoreham on May 1 – and ends back at Shoreham on June 20. In between there are 27 venues - including the Under Ground Theatre on Saturday, May 3.
And his entire stage show, guitar and lights will be packed into panniers and a bike trailer. The show equipment is high tech, lightweight and low energy.
He explained, “Touring musicians tend to leave a fairly massive footprint so for me this is payback time.
“Having been a regular cyclist for tears I wanted to see where a tour by bike would take me, both geographically and musically.”
During the planning and training for the tour Richard has been writing and recording a new album and the results of Cycling Music are an atmospheric blend of acoustic and minimalistic music.
