Sharon Isbin performs for WAIS

   Grammy Award-winning guitarist Sharon Isbin will be performing Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m., as part of the Walton Arts and Ideas Series. Isbin has been called “the preeminent solo guitarist of our time,” and her performances have been described not just as an evening of music, but as a “whirlwind tour of the globe.”
   This musical world tour will introduce the audience members to folk-inspired music from the Appalachian Mountains, Ireland, Greece, Israel, Spain, Cuba, Venezuela, and Brazil. The performance has been described as “joyous,” “vibrant,” and “the next best thing to traveling the world yourself.” As always, faculty, staff and students can receive one free ticket to the performance.
