LIONA BOYD


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2018  7:30 PM

Presented by:  Shantero Productions

An Intimate Evening With The First Lady of the Guitar!  
Accompanied by:  Andrew Dolson

Liona Boyd, since her 1975 debut performance at Carnegie Hall, New York, has enthralled audiences worldwide with her romantic and unique brand of classical, folk and world music. Tracing the timeline—Spanish-British heritage, emigrating to Canada in 1959, “falling in love with classical guitar at the age of 13”, graduating from the University of Toronto with a music degree in 1972—the traditional classical music path seemed quite clear. However, Liona embarked on a far more adventurous journey. In addition to her solo career, she began touring with and opening for Canadian folk legend, Gordon Lightfoot.  She went on to perform and record with many artists of diverse genres, a small sampling of whom include Chet Atkins, Canadian Brass, Eric Clapton, Olivia Newton-John, Yo Yo Ma and Al Di Meola. 

Following her 2009 diagnosis of focal dystonia, Liona tweaked her playing style, added singing to her repertoire and two years ago began touring with protege, Andrew Dolson, classically trained in both guitar and voice. Audiences can anticipate solo and duet classical guitar pieces, songs—both familiar and new, personal anecdotes from a storied career … all delivered with charm, humour and grace.

Don't miss An Intimate Evening with ‘the first lady of guitar’ … Liona Boyd!
