Waterford Music present Ben Johnson (Tenor) & Sean Shibe (Classical Guitar) in Concert
Catch this world-class duo on their first visit to Ireland.

For this concert he joins up with Ben Johnson, one of the busiest young tenors in the chamber music and opera worlds, a multi-award winning recitalist and owner of one of the most beguiling voices around.
Songs by John Dowland, Philip Rosseter, Thomas Morley, Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Mauro Giuliani, Brian Bolger (new commission), William Walton, together with a collection of folk songs and Johann Sebastian Bach’s Suite in E minor, BWV996
