Richard Digance is a man of many talents – singer, guitarist, raconteur, songwriter, poet, author. Many people sing, play guitar and tell stories, but not many have supported Steve Martin, Robin Williams or played a guitar duet with Brian May of Queen. Richard Digance has.
Richard Digance is a rare performer in that he’s respected by comedians for his original material and by musicians for being an accomplished performer/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 even further when he started out in folk clubs. His evergreen career has been acknowledged through numerous awards within both the music and entertainment industries, from a BAFTA Nomination as a TV entertainer to a Gold Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He is included in The Virgin Anthology of Songwriters for his important contribution to British comedy song writing.
However, Richard Digance does not rest on his immense reputation. In the last two years he has broadened his appeal, firstly by proving to be one of Britain’s most sought after cruise entertainers and secondly by returning to his musical roots through major music festival appearances.
