Sean Shibe meets Dunedin Consort

Sean Shibe meets Dunedin Consort

Guitarist Sean Shibe takes centre stage in this folk-inspired programme, which traces the roots of the Scottish-Canadian diaspora in music from the Renaissance to the present day. From the exquisite delicacy of the Scottish lute manuscripts and Dowland’s heart-rending Lachrimae, we course through Purcell and Geminiani to meet Sir James MacMillan’s timeless From Galloway and Linda Catlin Smith’s Sinfonia – united by their irresistible blend of modernism and folksong. And at its zenith, modern guitar meets gut strings in a brand-new guitar concerto from the award-winning Canadian composer, Cassandra Miller.
