With over 25 albums, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Sharon Isbin has covered a lot of ground. This past March, she released a new album for SONY, called "Journey to the New World." A musical progression from 16th century Britain to America, the CD includes everything from John Dowland lute music to the Joan Baez Suite, a work Isbin commissioned from composer John Duarte in 2002. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton talks with Ms. Isbin about this latest offering, and includes samples of music from the new CD.
