This 20-year-old British cellist has sparked a global music phenomenon


It’s being called the “Sheku effect” — the rise of young people in the United Kingdom signing up for classical music lessons to play the cello. Sheku Kannah-Mason is a 20-year-old acclaimed musician who performed at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018 — and has been making a major impact inspiring others to play. Jeffrey Brown recently sat down with Sheku in Baltimore.
