Richard - singer and acoustic guitarist
Richard has been playing guitar and singing for over 30+ years and in that time has mastered many musical styles. He performs a wide variety of covers - playing background music in a restaurant, in a pub/bar or at an event/function/party getting people singing along or up and dancing with a bit of Rock 'n' Roll. His particular passion is for Jazz standards, played with exquisite fingerstyle. With a repertoire of over 500 songs from the 1930's up to present day, he can entertain any audience. In the second set he includes a quirky feature using a song request menu, where the audience can request their favourite song.

Dave King (Local Festival): "I booked Richard (on recommendation) to perform at the Boston Spa Big Festival last weekend. As a musician myself, I was very impressed with his performance. His arrangements were interesting, as was his choice of material, and his delivery flawless. He is a complete professional and lovely chap to boot. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for your event. So much so, I have already booked him for next year!
Harry Nesbitt (Dartmouth Festival): Richard played at our Woofstock UK festival in 2018. He has a great voice and rapport with the audience. Good mix of music from old to up to date keeping audiences of all ages captivated.
Duncan Stow (Market Organiser): Richard performed this Saturday at our community Farmers Market. As organisers of the market we were inundated with positive comments from shoppers and stall holders. He performed a wide range of music, had a good rapport with his audience, played with a smile and to top it all for us was very well organised and self sufficient bringing everything he needed to perform - even fingerless gloves as it was cold!!!
Andrew Gilliver (Manor Sessions, Otley): Richard Stirland has been the featured artist at my venue "The Manor Sessions" several times. He is an absolute joy to listen to and is very popular entertainer with our diverse audience. His range of material is enormous with songs in many genres from jazz standards, and ballads to popular chart songs from every decade to the present date. I highly recommend him.
