Sean Shibe on his new album 'Camino'

Friday, August 20, 2021

The Scottish guitarist, and first Gramophone Concept Album Award winner, talks about his first album for Pentatone

Sean Shibe has just released a new album, 'Camino', an exploration of the cross-fertilisation of French and Spanish music, and built around the gentle sound world of Federico Mompou. He talks to James Jolly about the stop-start music-making experience of the pandemic and how it focused his mind on exploring Spanish music for the first time on record. A passionate advocate for new music, Shibe also reveals what he's been up to on the contemporary music front.
