THE next concert in the West Wight Arts Association season will be given by classical guitarist Sean Shibe next Saturday, February 10, in the Memorial Hall, Freshwater, at 7pm.
Born in Edinburgh in 1992 of English and Japanese heritage, Sean studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and with the inspirational 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 selected by Young Classical Artists Trust in 2015.
He will play Scottish lute music from the Balcarres, Rowallan, Straloch and Wemyss manuscripts (from between 1695 and 1702), J. S. Bach’s Lute Suite No 2 in A minor and a selection of etudes and preludes by Villa-Lobos.
Tickets are available from www.westwightarts.co.uk or 756028. Advance booking is recommended.
