Manchester Collective: Rosewood

A kaleidoscope of musical colours.

Scottish star guitarist Sean Shibe joins forces with Manchester Collective for the first time in an artistic meeting of minds that is long overdue.

At the heart of the programme are a pair of new works written for Sean and the Collective. British artist Emily Hall writes music that inhabits the spaces between genres – classical, electronic and folk traditions. New York composer Kelly Moran also walks an artistic tightrope, poised somewhere between the experimental, the wild and the human.

With Sean performing on electric and acoustic guitars alongside an all-star string quartet lineup, this show will transport you to unexpected sound worlds and strange new places.
