Guitarist Richard Durrant prepares for his final summer performance at St Nicholas Church in Baulking, Oxfordshire.

The Sussex-born musician whose repertoire investigates the UK's enchanting landscapes is noted for often touring on a bike, covering about 7,000 miles now, promoting climate change awareness and reducing emissions.

The concert, scheduled for July 20, will be a treat for the senses, featuring classic pieces from Villa-Lobos, Bach and many more.

The music is chosen to celebrate the essence of summer.

Often inspired by the Pagan scenery across Britain, he first took an interest in the historic art on Wimington's South Downs during his childhood.

His long engagement with the location led to the launch of his LongMan Records in the 11th Century Benedictine Priory, where he used to live.

Durrant's fascination with English landscapes was once again manifested in his double album Stringhenge in 2018.

The gig is organized by the punk rocker turned music promoter George Reade, who has previously collaborated with Richard numerous times.

He says: "Anyone who was at Richard's first concert for us will tell you his playing is extraordinary and that he's a nice bloke to boot.

"Someone as good as this should be a national treasure."

Though Richard will arrive this time by car, his cycling journeys will resume in the summer of 2025 with his sixth Cycling Music tour.
