Sean Shibe receives an award

On Wednesday 16 October 2019, at the Gramophone Classical Music Awards, the guitarist Sean Shibe was the first recipient of the Concept Album Award for SoftLOUD, which combines Scottish traditional dances with pieces by James MacMillan, Julia Wolfe, David Lang and Steve Reich. Sean’s performance of the latter’s Electric Counterpoint was described by its composer as ‘one of the best recordings ever’.

Sean gave our inaugural daytime recital at Elmslie House to a full and enthusiastic audience in April 2018.
