× LIONA BOYD accompanied by Andrew Dolson An Intimate Evening With The First Lady of the Guitar! COMING TO SELECT ONTARIO THEATRES

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. Also spanning a wide range of styles, Liona has released 28 studio, live or compilation albums, five of which went gold, and three platinum. No stranger to awards and accolades, her highlights include five Junos, the Order of Canada, five honorary doctorates and, in June 2018, the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award from the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition.

“Exceptional sensitivity and an impressive sense of dedication” - Los Angeles Times

“Nothing short of fantastic. Liona takes one's breath away.” - Denver Post

“A quiet poetic brilliance” - The Plain Dealer, Cleveland

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!
