Sharon Isbin:
Troubadour

Air date: Sat., Feb. 28, 8:00 pm


Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique and versatility, Sharon Isbin is considered one of today’s pre-eminent classical guitarists. Isbin’s catalogue of more than 25 recordings – ranging from Baroque, folk and Latin to rock, pop and jazz-fusion – reflects her remarkable versatility. Combining performance and documentary, the film focuses on Isbin’s unusual and inspiring musical journey, including her struggles working in a traditionally male-dominated field. We also see Isbin’s role as teacher to a new generation of guitarists at both The Julliard School, where she created the first guitar department, and the Aspen Music Festival.
