Sharon Isbin

We look up and out on Now Is the Time, Saturday, September 26th at 9 pm. In Philadelphia there’s no escaping the influence of the pope’s visit this weekend, so there’s a sacred tinge to this Saturday’s program. Curt Cacioppo gives the solo piano a workout, negotiating the potential of a rock-ribbed hymn in his Ostinato-Fantasia on "All Creatures of Our God and King."

Join Jill Pasternak as she interviews multiple Grammy Award-winning guitarist Sharon Isbin. Her latest CD, Sharon Isbin & Friends: Guitar Passions is highlighted.

Grammy Award-winning classical guitarist Sharon Isbin is Jill's guest this week. Her new CD - Journey to the New World - takes you from the Renaissance to the world of Bluegrass music, and features guest performers including singer Joan Baez and fiddler Mark O'Connor in the world premiere of his folk-inspired suite for violin and guitar.
