“Sharon Isbin isn’t your average internationally renowned, multiple Grammy Award winning, Billboard chart-topping female classical guitarist. In addition to making dozens of recordings of music from the traditional and modern classical guitar repertoires” including nine compositions written specifically for her”and giving hundreds of performances with leading orchestras and ensembles in celebrated venues worldwide, she has also passionately embraced music of other traditions.

Both albums received Grammys.”
