Named after the bus that would take the young Durrant to his weekly guitar lessons in Hove, the 'The No 26 Bus to Paraguay' provides the soundtrack to those formative years, where Barrios' compositions would be tackled by young fingers eager to explore the dusty end of the fret board, whilst examining old original wax cylinder recordings. Referring to the compositions as 'infectious and charismatic' Durrant plays each of the compositions live, sometimes in front of friends and neighbours. Devoid of any studio trickery, this album comes across as pure as you are likely to get.
