Richard Digance will make a welcome return to Stamford Corn Exchange on Saturday, June 20.

This popular all-round performer has supported Steve Martin and Robin Williams as well as playing guitar alongside Brian May and performing with the Moody Blues, Status Quo, Chris deBurgh, Juan Martin, Marc Cohn and Elkie Brooks on his own television shows.

He is a rare showman who is respected by comedians for his original material and by musicians for being an accomplished guitarist.

His loyal following confirms his wide appeal. From the younger generation, attracted by both his guitar playing and the fact he has inspired many modern-day performers, to the super-loyal who have followed Richard since the time he had his own ITV series and from the early days when he started out in folk clubs.

His evergreen career has been acknowledged through numerous awards within both the music and entertainment industries.

He is also a world-acclaimed poet, an author and an artist. His poetry is published and included in teaching aids around the world including the Canadian syllabus for English; Fearndon Teaching Aids, Illionois, USA, The Oxford University Anthology of Poetry, The West Indies Schools syllabus and more recently in Australia and in Cape Town South Africa as part of English First Additional Language Grade 8 Reader.

However, Richard Digance does not rest on his immense reputation. He has broadened his appeal by proving to be one of Britain’s most sought after cruise entertainers and by returning to his musical roots through major music festival appearances.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £16.50 or £33 for dinner and show.
