Richard DiganceRichard Digance is quite simply one of the most entertaining acts you will ever see. Brilliant self-penned comic songs introduced with panache, style and outrageous humour. He is highly respected by fellow comedians for his original material and by musicians for being one of Britain's top acoustic guitarists. He has appeared to an audience of 8 in The Falklands, half a million at Knebworth Festival and done thousands of shows in between, as well as occasionally finding 9 letter words on Countdown.
Richard achieved a BAFTA Nomination for TV Entertainer Of The Year in the late 1980s and in 2003 received the Gold Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters for his services to live music.
Richard Digance has worked with a multitude of world-class acts including Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Roy Orbison, The Beach Boys, Elton John, David Essex, Jim Davidson, Supertramp, Elkie Brooks and Tom Jones. His TV specials for ITV ran for a record 11 years and on these shows he played guitar with Brian May, Status Quo, The Moody Blues, Buffy St Marie, Juan Martin, Marc Cohn and Chris de Burgh.
Richard has recently broadened his appeal still further by returning to his musical roots through appearances at festivals, smaller theatres, arts centres and larger folk clubs. It’s what he loves doing!
