Hailed by The Sunday Times as “another Bream”, Sean Shibe is one of the foremost guitarists of his generation, with a refreshing approach to the traditional classical guitar canon that avoids cliché, and challenges all preconceptions.

Born in Edinburgh in 1992 of English and Japanese heritage, he was the first guitarist to be selected for the prestigious BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists Scheme, and the only solo guitarist to be awarded a coveted Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.

His Irish début in the magnificently restored Elizabethan Rathfarnham Castle, near Rathfarnham Village, is a must for guitar aficionados!
