Miss Blackwell plays alongside Sheku

Posted on September 25, 2018


Two days after his performance at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall, Sheku Kanneh-Mason was in Budleigh Salterton to headline their Music Festival in July 2018. Sheku is the young cellist who performed at the wedding of Prince Harry, following winning BBC Young Musician of the Year and the success of his Number 1 Classical album (which also reached number 18 in the pop charts). A handful of professional musicians from the South West were chosen to accompany him in the orchestra and Miss Blackwell was one of 12 violinists selected to play alongside him. “It was amazing and probably the highlight of my summer.”
