Brecon's Gerard Cousins was on hand to interview Craig Ogden in a pre-show talk prior virtuoso classical guitarist's performance at Theatr Brycheiniog last night (Friday April 15).
The Australian star told a riveted audience about an elaborate double classical guitar heist he found himself involved in, where a conman using the cover of a memorial service managed to walk off with Craig's £20,000 Greg Smallman guitar. Luckily, Craig managed to lodge an insurance claim. Phew!
After the interview, Craig Ogden went on to enthrall the Brecon audience with pieces by Domenico Scarlatti, George Harrison, Lennon/McCartney, Django Reinhardt, Joaquin Turina, JS Bach, Isaac Albeniz and Gary Ryan.
