Guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer Sean Frenette has been delighting audiences across the North America with the passion, innovation, and spirit of his unique musical performances. A graduate of New England Conservatory, Frenette has performed 3 times at Carnegie Hall: with Edgar Meyer & Mike Marshall in 2006, Zakir Hussain in 2009, and composer John Adams & Juilliard’s Ensemble ACJW in 2010. The past six years have seen Sean touring nationwide with many different musical projects: with vocalist Lindsey Stormo, conductor Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra, vocalist/composer Peia, and internationally-renown kirtan ensemble Shantala.
With 3 string guitar, electric-classical guitar, woodwinds, bass, piano and voice, Sean's original music artfully blends improvisation and slow-crafted composition, as well as influences that run the gamut—Michael Hedges, Andres Segovia, classical Indian music, Gregorian chant, Bach, and Jimi Hendrix to name few. From his synthesis of innovation and tradition emerges a vibrant and enchanting musical tapestry.
