Podcast Episode 9: The Musician

Episode 9 brings us something a little bit different to usual as we meet an incredibly wild musician! Richard Durrant has drawn inspiration from Knepp and his love of nature to create his latest album ‘Rewilding’ which includes bird song recorded at Knepp.

Jon Everitt’s wonderful artwork for Richard’s album

It all started with a duet between Richard, playing his 5,000-year-old bog oak guitar, and a nightingale in a Knepp hedgerow and has resulted in a beautiful album which celebrates the return of nature both above and below ground.

Visit Richard’s website for more information about gigs, forthcoming live online events and his music academy, check out his excellent YouTube channel, and for an uplifting feed do follow him on Twitter and Facebook.

This podcast wouldn’t have been possible without the support of some very talented people so many thanks go to: Lia Brazier for the beautiful podcast artwork, Richard Durrant for his wonderful music (including the intro/outro music this time!) and the fantastic Ian Bunn for his super editing skills.
