Richard Durrant presents BACH ON A BIKE (Cycling Music Lap 2 – Shoreham To The Isle Of Skye)

After last year’s successful 1,500 mile, seven week Cycling Music tour the UK’s busiest virtuoso guitarist is back in the saddle.

Between May 1st and July 3rd 2015 Richard will pedal up to 100 miles between gigs carrying everything on his bike. He’ll perform a wide selection of virtuoso music highlighting the chameleon like qualities of the guitar. The show includes JS Bach’s mighty D minor Chaconne and will also feature Richard’s own Cycling Music for guitar, sequencers, and pre-recorded bicycle percussion, complete with spectacular projected animations. The cycling minstrel will also find room in his trailer for his favourite ukulele on which he’ll perform additional works by JS Bach.

Cycling Music was written for Richard’s successful 2014 album of the same name. It was played during the BBC’s coverage of last year’s Le Tour De France, in the film Bicycle (Blue Hippo Productions), on ITV’s Cycle Show, and on BBC Radio3.

A donation from each show on the tour will be made to the Cycling Defence Fund (CDF).
