Stoke Newington Guitar Festival is extremely happy to welcome Sean Shibe, one of the most exciting young talents in the classical music world. His approach to the traditional classical guitar canon avoids cliché and challenges all preconceptions.

In 2017 Sean Shibe's debut solo album release on Delphian Records was met with critical acclaim and won him a nomination in the BBC Music Magazine Instrumental Award category. Dreams and Fancies is a recording that explores the fruits of Julian Bream's history of commissioning in the 20th century alongside music by Dowland and was named Editors Choice in Gramophone as well as BBC Music Magazines Instrumental Choice.

Alongside the success of his recording debut, Sean Shibe's uncompromisingly monumental project softLoud premiered at the East Neuk and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, a revelatory programme juxtaposing Jacobean lute music for classical guitar, with electric guitar arrangements of multi-tracked repertoire including US Pulitzer prize winning composers Julia Wolfes powerful elegy Lad, (originally written for 9 bagpipes) and David Langs Killer.

Born in Edinburgh in 1992 of English and Japanese heritage, he 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 and 2017.
