Masterful dexterity & musical diversity

»Shibe's music-making is masterful, beautiful and convincing in every way«, wrote The Times about the exceptional Scottish guitarist. What sets Sean Shibe apart, however, is not only his masterful control of his instrument and his sensitive playing, but also his great musical versatility and love of experimentation. He is interested in both acoustic and electric guitar, early and contemporary music, and is constantly searching for new ways to expand the repertoire for his instrument, for example with contemporary compositions by Daniel Kidane, David Lang, Julia Wolfe, Thomas Adès and Helen Grime. For his albums »softLOUD«, on which he combined acoustic and electric guitar as well as music from early Scottish lute manuscripts with contemporary pieces, and »Bach« with lute suites by Johann Sebastian Bach arranged for electric guitar, he received a Gramophone Award in 2019 and 2021.
