Many thanks to Peter and Hilary for organising it and providing the excellent food and drinks. Looking forward to the next evenings .

| It is impossible to do justice to Richard's career in a couple of paragraphs... I mean, where do you start?|
Not many guitarists have played a duet with Queen's Brian May, worked withSteve Martin, played an acoustic set with Status Quo or performed at The London Palladium with the late Robin Williams,... Richard has....
In a long and fruitful career he has appeared on practically every worthwhile TV or radio variety show, such as "Live from the Palladium", as well as having his own series in the shape of A Dabble of Digance, Abracadigance and Richard Digance's Greatest Bits. Along with all this he has appeared at folk festivals nationwide and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Richard is a BAFTA Nominated entertainer and a Gold Award recipient from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He isalso listed in the Virgin Anthology of Music as an influential writer of comedic songs. As a music composer for documentaries he has been awarded two Local Radio Awards with Ralph Bernard CBE and his music is used extensively on TV and film projects mainly in The United Kingdom, most recently by BBC Radio2.
But most of all, he loves being on stage with his one man shows of music and comedy. So you never have to ask him why he longer appears on TV himself,.... he's far too busy
