Join us for a springtime serenade, as guitarist Craig Ogden leads a programme with Southern European colour. Craig has a 20 year association with Manchester, since attending the Royal Northern College of Music, and is now a renowned teacher of guitar and one of the instrument’s greatest advocates. He is joined by special guest, Francisco Antonio, who plays his own music based on traditional
flamenco forms such as Soleares, Bulerias, Alegrias and Guajiras.
