Sacha Bistany is an Irish guitarist currently studying at the Royal College of Music (RCM), under professors Gary Ryan and Christopher Stell. Sacha studied at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in his youth. He has had the opportunity to play with a number of Irish guitar ensembles including the Irish National Youth Guitar Orchestra, conducted by David Brophy. He has also competed in many music competitions including Ireland’s national competition, The ‘Feis Ceol’ – winning was a great achievement.

During recent years, Sacha has participated in a number of masterclasses with well-renowned guitarists including Xuefei Yang, Laura Snowden and Sean Shibe.

He recently received the Homan Potterton Bursary for String Instruments from Irish Heritage, a charity that supports Irish artists.
