Richard, Amy & Nick return to with their eagerly awaited festive feast of great songs, early and British folk, traditional carols and solo guitar works.

The evening will be family-friendly and full of midwinter charm.

“An all-embracing winter tapestry…whether pure instrumental or paired with Amy Kakoura’s soothing tones, it’s a tasteful celebration.” Guitar & Bass

The Brighton born musician, who has toured as a soloist all over the world and likes to mix things up musically, sees the festive season through a Pagan as well as a Christian lens:

“I love midwinter and carefully mark the solstice, but I’m also drawn to the true meaning of itself. And then there’s that crazy that re-emerges each year! As the nights draw in, do I listen to a 12th-century carol or some 1970’s chart ?”

With the help of his regular winter companions, the singer Amy Kakoura and master fiddler Nick Pynn (who will also play the dulcimer, musical saw and bass pedals), Richard’s 2019 tour is musically richer than ever.  Virtuoso guitar solos, the oldest song in the Oxford Book of Carols, Breton folk, British fiddle tunes and some well-chosen curiosities from the charts, all played from behind shimmering candlelight, seem to indicate his desire to draw the audience closer. Certainly, the musical diversity indicates a very particular and inclusive take on our shared wintertime with , the Solstice and an inherent, heartfelt generosity, warmth and optimism at the very heart of the show.

Last year the trio’s live version of XTC’s Love on a Farmboy’s Wages proved such a curiosity that it was aired on BBC6 .  Subsequently, a small collection of live recordings from 2018 were released during the tour.
