About Liona Boyd

Billed by promoters as the "First Lady of the Guitar," Liona Boyd has fully lived up to that accolade. Since the early '80s, she has been one of the most popular classical guitarists; she has also recorded vocal music in the crossover and pop realms. Boyd performed several classical works at a Gordon Lightfoot concert to an enthusiastic reception and subsequently joined his troupe for a highly successful tour as an opener. In 1973, she released her debut album, The Guitar. Throughout the latter 20th century and into the 2000s, Boyd's career continued to thrive. By 2002, she had recorded about 20 albums for some of the largest labels. Her recordings include Whispers of Love (2000) and Camino Latino (2002), the former containing some of Boyd's own compositions. She returned in 2023 with the recital album Once Upon a Time, exclusively featuring her own compositions.
