Sean Shibe at The Stoller Hall, Manchester, 20 May 2022, from £5.50 - Book now

Kicking off Manchester Guitar Festival 2022 in style, Sean Shibe will be performing a typically eclectic programme at The Stoller Hall on Friday 20 May. One of the foremost guitarists of his generation, Shibe was the first ever guitarist to be selected for BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme. Growing up on a musical diet of contemporary classical and avant-garde jazz, Sean’s interests remain eclectic, as shown in his programme for the festival. The first half is dedicated to classical guitar, with two delectable suites by JS Bach (BWV 996) and Mompou (Compostelana), before switching to electric guitar in the second half for Julia Wolfe’s LAD and Steve Reich’s hypnotic Electric Counterpoint. Having featured the piece on his second album softLOUD, Shibe was praised by Reich himself for “One of the best recordings of Electric Counterpoint ever!” – high acclaim indeed.
