Sheku Kanneh-Mason

August 27, 2018. Nineteen-year old British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason has been riding a media wave since winning the BBC Young Musician competition in 2016. Millions watched his performance this past May at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Sheku’s debut recording, Inspiration, released earlier this year by London-Decca, is our album of the week.

When Britain’s Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle took their wedding vows on May 19th, a 19-year-old cellist added to the musical pageantry of the royal ceremony.  Sheku Kanneh-Mason caught the attention of Prince Harry last June while playing at a charity event in London.  Now he’s graduating to a worldwide stage.
