We asked Craig some questions for this blog….
- What’s your favourite thing about going on tour?
It’s a great escape from every day life! All you have to worry about is having fun playing the guitar which was the reason I came to the UK in the first place.
2. What can the Camberley audience expect?
Variety! There’s lots of different music in this programme – hopefully something for everyone. I also like to chat a bit about the music, my guitar, other aspects of doing what I do, so hopefully the audience will feel entertained and informed.
- Have you any funny or special memories of Surrey in general?
My favourite Surrey memory would be performing with the legendary guitarist John Williams at Surrey University a few years ago. I grew up listening to his recordings and saw him play in Perth a number of times when I was a kid. Playing duets with him was surreal and wonderful!
- This is our 50th Anniversary year, can you remember your first trip to the theatre and / or the first piece of music you bought?
I can remember the first little vinyl single I bought – Music Box Dancer played by Richard Clayderman – what a cool kid I was!? The song that really inspired me to want to play the guitar was ‘This Old Guitar’ by John Denver. I loved lying in our lounge room listening to his albums from when I was about five years old! Annoyingly, I can’t remember my first trip the theatre but although Perth is very isolated there is lots going on there so I remember many different trips to see plays, ballet and other shows during my childhood.
Thanks Craig! For you, here’s John Denver with that gorgeous old Gibson guitar from 1910.
