‘Love at first listen’ is how Miloš describes the moment when, as a child in Montenegro, he first picked up the old guitar that was lying around his childhood home gathering dust. Thirty years later, he is a chart-topping star, described by The Times as the ‘Classical Guitar God’ and thrilling audiences wherever he goes.

There will be an extended interval of around two hours, and audience are invited to picnic in the grounds of Birdsall House between the two performances.
