Richard Durrant & The Burning Deck: Six Grooves For Ukulele

The world premiere of Six Grooves For Ukulele by Richard Durrant.

Grand finale of the Sussex Ukulele Festival 2017.

Richard Durrant & The Burning Deck perform this brand-new piece for solo ukulele, chamber orchestra and community uke players. Six Grooves For Ukulele was written with support from Arts Council England and the PRS for Music Fund.

The Burning Deck, directed by Richard Durrant, features a full string section plus Chris Brannick and Stephen Hiscock (percussion), Howard Beach (piano and keys), and Gareth Hugh Davis (bass). The performance also incorporates over 20 audience ukulele players.

To top things off, there will also be performances of ‘Cycling Music’ and ‘The Girl At The Airport’ by Richard Durrant.

This promises to be an incredible night of ground-breaking new music, showcasing the ukulele in all its magnificent glory.

Six Grooves For Ukulele is dedicated to George Hinchliffe and the late Kitty Lux, founders of the Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain.

£18 seated, £14 standing.
