Please Help A Guitarist on the Camino

My good friend the, very talented, guitarist Richard Durrant https://www.richarddurrant.com/ has a marvellous adventure planned for this year - A journey on a bicycle from St Magnus' Cathedral in Orkney to Santiago playing concerts along the way. On parts of his journey he will be accompanied by a group of other cyclists / peregrinos and supporters. Through Spain Richard will follow the Camino Frances as closely as is possible on a bicycle towing a trailer loaded with his wonderful guitars and ukuleles.

This isn't a request for funding or a solicitation for participants but it is a request for help. Richard will be in Spain from the 1st to about the 10th / 12th October and is looking for venues in which to play along the Way. We have, we hope, gigs arranged in St Jean, Fromista and Santiago. What I am hoping this wonderful Forum can provide is suggestions for venues but especially contact details for anyone on the ground who can help, be-it cultural associations, amigo associations or even one of the iconic Albergues we all know and love. Tentative over-night stops are Pamplona, Logrono, Burgos, Fromista, Mansilla de las Mulas, Ponferrada and either Samos or Sobrado dos Monxes.

I've attached one of Richards flyers. If you would like to hear a sample of his wonderful playing follow the link to his website above.

Thanks

A couple of ideas come to mind:
1) Your friend might want to connect with CaminoArtes (http://caminoartes.org/en/) which describes itself as "an international project in which professional artists of the classical guitar from all over the world come as volunteers and bring their music to the Camino".
2) Your friend may want to connect with Dan Mullins (@DanfromSydney). Dan is probably best known for his "My Camino" podcast, but I know that he has traveled the Camino Frances carrying a guitar and he might have some knowledge of good venues to play.

I cant remember the details, but a quick google search under Camino Santiago cello should bring up the links for a celloist who walked the camino with his cello and did concerts in churches and other venues along the way. Might be good info. I believe this happened about 2015
best of luck to your friend...I wóuld suggest that Asturias would be a very good piece to include in the repertoire!

Two albergues, although very near Pamplona. They are both physically connected to churches. Zabaldika and Trinidad de Arre. Easy to find on web.

San Miguel church in Estella might be worth considering. Every year in the first two weeks of September the town is host to a festival of ancient music. Although your friend’s music @Tincatinker, might not fit in that slot, the organisers include a local Camino confraternity who might be worth contacting. Will pm you with info when I have it. Also the good people at the Estella/Lizarre tourist office are very helpful. Together with a peregrina friend I attended a concert given by Jordi Savall and Pedro Estevan In San Miguel last September. The acoustics were wonderful & the atmosphere sublime, with the church filled with locals and visitors.

Finally read this thread and and was pleasantly surprised that I was familiar with the guitarist in question :)

I have a couple of his records - -vinyl LPs only. Yeah, I'm a vinyl snob :) Durrant has a style reminiscent of Parkening, of whom I am a fan.

But I am going to download a copy of each of the albums as FLAC files into my to Bluesound Vault. I am, after all, not totally impractical :)

I can't recommend any venues but perhaps he could the Ukuleles I've left atEstella, Ribadiso and Pilgrim House in Santiago.

Hornillos del camino, wonderful restaurant run by a couple of Irish girls. They put on evening meals with local musicians and encourage participation. Can’t quite remember the name now but l think it’s called The “Green”something.

I remember seeing somewhere a concert was given in the church at Carrion de Condes. Perhaps it is time for another.
Yes, I recall attending a wonderful concert featuring a guitarist and his son singing in the church at Carrion de los Condes. It was in fact introduced as a concert given for pilgrims and was apparently a long-standing tradition there. It was most memorable for me as it happened to take place on my birthday.

My brother in law (Sean) has cycled with Richard many times before, and he (Richard) and I used to play in the Brighton Youth Orchestra many years ago! My husband and I have walked 2/3 of the Via Podiensis and hoping to get over the Pyrenees this time, before starting to walk the Camino Frances.
We have also walked the last 100km from Sarria - Santiago with my brother in law. What a shame we won't be walking at the same time as he is cycling - (we tend to go earlier in the year,) as it would have been great to catch up with the concerts along the route. As we haven't yet done the bit from St Jean onwards, I am afraid we can't suggest any venues yet. I imagine probably the Orisson refuge or the Roncevalles Refugio is where he would be likely to get a captive audience as they appear to be larger places. We wish him well.
