Guitarist Richard Durrant will stop by The Pound Arts Centre in Corsham today as part of his Cycling Music tour of the country.

He will ride the 1,000 miles between concert venues with his entire stage show, guitar and lights, packed into panniers and a bike trailer. The show equipment is hi-tech, lightweight and low energy.

He said: “Touring musicians tend to leave a fairly massive carbon footprint – so for me this is payback time.

"Having been a regular cyclist for years I wanted to see where a tour by bike would take me, both geographically and musically.”

He began his tour on May 1 in Shoreham, Sussex, and will perform in Corsham at 7.30pm today. To book tickets, call The Pound Arts Centre on (01249) 701628 or visit www.poundarts.org.uk
