Sean Shibe – Classical Guitar

“Shibe’s music-making is masterful, beautiful and convincing in every way”

The Times, 2020

One of the most versatile guitarists performing today, Sean Shibe’s innovative approach to his instrument has enhanced his reputation for having “one of the most discriminating ears in the business” (Gramophone). He was the first guitarist ever to be selected for BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme, to be awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and, in 2018, to receive the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Young Artists. Additional accolades include the Royal Over-Seas League First Prize and Gold Medal (2011) and the 2015 YCAT International Auditions.  He is the 2022 recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award.
