These themed solo concerts will take place on the last Saturday of January, February and March 2021 on YouTube and Facebook. Voluntary tickets of £10 (or multiples of £10) are now on sale on Richard’s website.

Richard said: “Never has the journey out of Midwinter felt so poignant. I just want to point my guitar in the direction of the light and comfort of the spring. Right now I’m preparing music for three, solo concerts to help carry us through to the Spring Equinox. I hope this will create opportunities to stop and mark this special time. Please join me.”
