Harrogate International Festivals' season of coffee concerts returns to the Old Swan Hotel with an international line-up of world-class chamber musicians.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason, one of the brightest young stars on the classical music scene, became a household name worldwide in May 2018 after performing at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician Competition, Sheku is already in great demand from major orchestras and concert halls worldwide. His debut recording, Inspiration, reached number one in the classical chart and 18 in the official UK album charts. Sheku began studying the cello at the age of six and is currently a full-time ABRSM scholarship student at the Royal Academy of Music. One of seven musical siblings, Sheku is joined onstage by his sister, pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason. Whilst continuing her postgraduate studies as a Gwendolyn Reiche scholar at the Royal Academy of Music, Isata has embarked on a successful and increasingly busy concert career as a solo artist, with concerto appearances, solo recitals and chamber concerts throughout the UK and abroad.
