Australian born guitarist Craig Ogden is one of the most exciting artists of his generation. He studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen. He is the youngest instrumentalist to have received a Fellowship Award from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
One of the UK’s most recorded guitarists, his recordings for Virgin/EMI, Chandos, Nimbus, Hyperion, Sony and Classic FM have received wide acclaim. Craig’s five Classic FM albums all shot straight to No.1 in the UK classical chart and he is one of Classic FM’s most played artists.
Craig has performed concertos with all the main UK orchestras plus many abroad. He regularly appears as soloist and chamber musician at major venues and collaborates with the UK’s top artists and ensembles.
Craig Ogden is Head of Guitar at the RNCM, Visiting Lecturer at London’s Royal College of Music, Adjunct Fellow of the University of Western Australia, Director of the Dean & Chadlington Summer Music Festival and Associate Artist of The Bridgewater Hall, where he curates Craig Ogden’s Big Guitar Weekend.
Craig performs with Northern Chamber Orchestra at 7.30pm on Friday 3 November
