Lily Afshar

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Archer Records is pleased to announce the release of “Possession”, Lily Afshar’s third album. But this time around, Afshar is making a bid to capture “the here and now” of classical guitar, in her own words. Rather than revisiting the past, heralded contemporary composers such as Salvador Brotons and Dusan Bogdanovic have created works just for Afshar’s skilled hands to play. — Press release


Guitarist Lily Afshar, hailed by the Washington Post as “remarkable, impeccable,” is head of the guitar program at the University of Memphis. Chosen as Artistic Ambassador to Africa for the United States Information Agency, her numerous awards include three consecutive annual “Premier Guitarist” awards from the Memphis Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

Her latest CD, “Jug of Wine and Thou”, is absolutely delightful. The effects of her delicate strokes of the guitar can only be described as heavenly. Among the19 tracks are five popular Persian ballads which indeed create the perfect mood for a jug of wine and thou.
