DESCRIPTION

Sean studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and currently studies with the inspirational Paolo Pegoraro in Italy.

In 2012 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.

Over the last year Sean has given recitals at Wigmore Hall, the Heidelberger-Frühling, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Bath International, Cambridge Summer and Aldeburgh Festivals. He returned to the Marlboro Summer Music Festival & Academy in the USA (on the invitation of Mitsuko Uchida), recorded solo works by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies for Linn Records as part of a Scottish Chamber Orchestra disc, and was the featured cover disc for BBC Music Magazine.

He will perform:

Scottish Lute Music from Balcarres manuscripts (c. 1695–1702)
JS Bach: Lute Suite No.2 in A minor (orig C minor) BWV997
Villa-Lobos: Selection of Etudes & Preludes

Doors open 7.30pm, concert begins at 8pm

Kettle's Yard

Kettle’s Yard is the University of Cambridge’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Music has always been played at Kettle’s Yard. There are two pianos in the House at Kettle’s Yard and when it was a home to Jim and Helen Ede they used to hold small concerts. Now we continue to present concerts. While Kettle’s Yard is closed for our major building project we are holding concerts in the Old Divinity School at St John’s College in Cambridge.
