"The attraction is that it is a beautiful country. I love Wales but the blunt truth is that Wales is no more musical than any other country"
Stuart Burrows is a beautiful and retiring man. We modelled in his music room surrounded by instruments. At one relaxed quiet instance he was pondering upon a melody and broke out into a gentle song. It felt like at any moment he could have cranked his voice to volume 11 and everything would have shattered!
