Shakespeare’s Globe recently announced its music event schedule for the coming summer, which will feature a series of collaborative performances between guitarist John Williams and a selection of acclaimed musicians at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
On June 20 Williams will welcome baroque lutenist Roberto Barto and Palestinian Duo Sabil (who Williams collaborated with at Songlines Encounters Festival 2013), two distinct masters of their art. South African guitarist Derek Gripper (a Top of the World artist in #91) returns after last year’s incredibly successful performance and kora virtuoso Tunde Jegede will return once again to join Williams on June 21. Other collaborators include Ralph McTell, quintet Tir Eolas, Paraguayan guitarist Berta Rojas and Venezuelan harpist Carlos Orozco.
