What is Scottish Ensemble’s Musical Book Club?

We’re delighted to invite you to a new online experience: SE’s ‘Musical Book Club’, the second instalment of which will be hosted by award-winning Scottish guitarist Sean Shibe, and Diane Clark, SE’s Principal Double Bassist.

Through our Musical Book Club, we want to offer a relaxed environment to bring people together, discuss powerful works of music, and recapture some of the post-concert spirit we might otherwise enjoy over drinks after a performance!

Please note, you don’t need to have any existing technical musical knowledge to join in – this is all about sharing passion and interest! You’re welcome to join the discussion, share thoughts and questions, or simply listen along at home.

Sean Shibe: Old & New

One of the foremost guitarists of his generation, Sean Shibe brings a fresh and innovative approach to the traditional classical guitar by experimenting with instruments and repertoire.

Like Scottish Ensemble, Sean is a champion of early and Baroque music, as well as new and contemporary repertoire.

Join us to listen to some of his favourite works, and hear his thoughts on interpreting and performing lesser-known and well-loved gems from across the centuries.

How Can I Join In?

The Book Club will be hosted through the free video conferencing software Zoom. If you would like any assistance downloading or configuring Zoom, just let us know.

A playlist containing recordings to be discussed, along with some questions and thoughts from Tom, will be shared with participants around one week before the session.

Tickets for this event cost £5 (plus an online booking fee).
