Sharon Lindo

Sharon was educated in London at the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she studied violin and recorder, and eventually specialised in early bowed stringed and wind instruments. She now performs and tours internationally with ensembles and orchestras including The Sixteen, Chiaroscuro, King's Consort and Collegium Musicum 90, with whom she made several recordings; she has also broadcast for national TV and radio stations at home and abroad. Sharon has a love of folk and early dance music, and works  closely with various early dance groups; she plays and records with the Broadside Band (popular 17th century music) and the Bashava Band (Jewish & Gypsy Repertoire), and her work in theatre includes the National Theatre and the Shakespeare Globe Theatre in London and Tokyo.
