Often billed as Britain’s most musical family, the Kanneh-Masons are seven siblings ­— Isata, Braimah, Sheku, Konya, Jeneba, Aminata and Mariatu ­— raised in Nottingham and range in age from 24 to 11 years old.

All play either violin, piano or cello.

They have won numerous awards and the children all attend, or have attended, London’s Royal Academy of Music and its Primary and Junior Academies, apart from Jeneba, who instead has chosen to study at London’s Royal College of Music.

Sheku, a cellist, won the 2016 BBC Young Musician competition and became a household name after performing at the 2018 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

He has made two chart topping albums, Inspiration and Elgar, as well as being a part of the family’s first album, Carnival, released in November.

Isata and Jeneba are both former BBC Young Musician category finalists and the eldest, pianist Isata, has also presented for the Proms.

Collectively, the Kanneh-Masons have performed at the 2018 BAFTA Ceremony and concert halls across the world and, during the lockdown months, garnered audiences in the millions for their popular Facebook live performances from their family home in Nottingham.

Their concert hall programme will include works by Beethoven, Mozart, Bartok, Chopin, Rachmainov, Eric Whitacre and Joseph Stein.
