‘From the very first note he plays, Sean Shibe immediately draws in the attention of the audience… Sean Shibe created a magical atmosphere; he seems to intimately understand the meaning behind every note which he plays.’ This was the opinion of Classical Guitar Magazine on Sean’s recital at the Wigmore Hall in 2014. Malvern Concert Club is delighted to engage Sean Shibe for its second daytime concert of the 115th Season, on Friday 6 April.

Born in Edinburgh in 1991, Sean Shibe studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and with Paolo Pegoraro in Italy. At the age of 20 he became the first guitarist to be selected for the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme, and the only solo guitarist to be awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship. He was selected by YCAT (Young Classical Artists Trust) in 2015. Last year his softLOUD project premièred to critical acclaim at the East Neuk and Edinburgh International Fringe Festivals. He also undertook a tour of China and Delphian released his first solo CD of English music. Engagements this season include debut concerts in Japan and Germany. As a soloist he appears with the Scottish Ensemble and records with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
