Music in Dumfries presents Sean Shibe (Guitar)

February 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Sean was born in Edinburgh in 1992 and 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 a YCAT artist between 2015-2017.

Sean’s approach to the traditional classical guitar canon challenges all preconceptions and he has rapidly achieved recognition as one of the foremost guitarists of his generation. He has performed at internationally renowned venues, including Aldeburgh Festival, Bath International Festival and, at the invitation of Mitsuko Uchida, returned to the Marlboro Summer Music Festival. He has toured extensively in China and appeared with the BBC Scottish Symphony and Scottish Chamber orchestras, as well as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

In 2018 Sean was selected by the Royal Philharmonic Society as Young Concert Artist of the year.

He will appear as soloist with the Scottish Ensemble in Dumfries in December 2018, returning for this recital for Music in Dumfries in February 2019.
