Shoreham guitar virtuoso Richard Durrant embarks on his Christmas candlelit concerts with special guests: Amy Kakoura (vocals) and Nick Pynn (violin).

They will be playing seasonal music from the folk, pagan and Christian traditions.

“I hope that our audiences will feel they have made contact with the magic of midwinter,” Richard said. “Us three musicians love playing these shows and it really does feel like Christmas onstage.Please come and join us!”
