    Luther Enloe Possessing a distinctively resonant sound quality, lyrical phrasing, and technical finesse, classical guitarist Luther Enloe has received acclaim for the expressive command of his live performances from both concert presenters and audience members alike. As printed in the Smokey Mountain Sentinel, “Luther captivates his audience through the beauty and intensity of his performance, while he engages even those audience members who are less than fans of classical guitar.” Luther’s programs offer an exciting variety of Spanish and Latin American masterpieces as well as contemporary works from the U.S.A. that can be appreciated by all audiences. Upcoming performance highlights include a re-invitation to perform at the 2020 University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Guitar Festival, as well as invitations to the 2020 Rhode Island Guitar Festival, and the 2020 Tiempo de Guitarras in Noto Sicily, Italy. Fall 2020 will include a performance of Joaquin Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with the Emory University Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, a new album, presently being recorded in fall 2019, will be released the following year. Recent performance highlights include concerts at the I Semana da Música, Literatura, História e Memória do IFPI, in Teresina, Brazil, Ifestival Internacional de Música e Violão Clássico na Joia de Campus, in Pedro II, Brazil, III Seminário Internacional de Violão (IFCE-UFC), in Fortaleza, Brazil, the Texas A&M International Guitar Symposium and Ensemble Competition, the Memphis International Guitar Festival, the Louisville Guitar Society, and Troy University Guitar Festival and Competition, among many others. Television broadcasts of Luther's solo and chamber performances are frequently featured in Atlanta on Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Knowledge Channel. A dedicated teacher, Luther holds the positions of Artist Affiliate in Guitar at Georgia State University and Emory University in Atlanta, GA. In addition to earning Bmus, MM, and DMA degrees at the University of Georgia with John Sutherland, he studied sixteen pieces in nine Masterclass settings with American virtuoso Christopher Parkening.
