BIOGRAPHY:

Luther Enloe SicilyClassical guitarist Luther Enloe has received international acclaim for the expressive command of his live performances from both concert presenters and audience members alike. As printed in the Smokey Mountain Sentinel, “Luther captivates his audience through the beauty and intensity of his performance, while he engages even those audience members who are less than fans of classical guitar.” Luther Enloe’s programs offer an exciting variety of Spanish and Latin American masterpieces as well as contemporary works from the U.S.A. that can be appreciated by all audiences.

Recent performance highlights from 2022 include concerts at Guitar Sarasota and four concerts in southern Sicily, Italy. Three of these concerts were in association with the inaugural El Llanto de la Guitarra International Festival in Ragusa: two solo concerts and a collaborative concert with author/orator Giancarlo Bellina. An additional concert was hosted by Agriturismo Terra di Pace in Noto. In all events, Luther Enloe was praised for his sensitive phrasing and lush sound quality. Furthermore, he has received two invitations to return to Sicily in 2023: one in June for the Guitar Summer Festival in Syracuse and another, A Tiempo de Guitarra X Festival Internazionale della Chitarra Noto, in September.

Additional recent performances include virtual concerts for  “Live from the Rialto Center” and the 2020 University of Rhode Island Guitar Festival. Additionally, Enloe has performed concerts at the I Semana da Música, Literatura, História e Memória do IFPI, in Teresina, Brazil, Ifestival Internacional de Música e Violão Clássico na Joia de Campus, in Pedro II, Brazil, III Seminário Internacional de Violão (IFCE-UFC), in Fortaleza, Brazil, the Texas A&M International Guitar Symposium and Ensemble Competition, the Memphis International Guitar Festival, the Louisville Guitar Society, and Troy University Guitar Festival and Competition, among many others. Television broadcasts of Luther Enloe’s solo and chamber performances are frequently aired in Atlanta on Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Knowledge Channel.
