Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique, and versatility, multiple Grammy winner Sharon Isbin is considered one of today's preeminent classical guitarists. Her catalog of more than 25 recordings -- ranging from Baroque, folk, and Latin to rock, pop, and jazz-fusion -- reflects Isbin's remarkable versatility. Combining performance and documentary, "Sharon Isbin: Troubadour" focuses on Isbin's unusual and inspiring musical journey, including her early guitar studies and teenage triumphs.</br>

The film also explores Isbin's role as teacher to a new generation of guitarists at both The Julliard School, where she created the first guitar department, and the Aspen Music Festival.</br>
