Chet Atkins, Tommy’s mentor and inspiration, awarded Tommy with the Certified Guitar Player award— a rare distinction shared with only four other guitarists in the world.
Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. Check this out! www.youtube.com/ watch?v=ENJuNCkPfx0) My Life As A One-Man Band | Tommy Emmanuel |
There’s a science to assembling the parts, and Emmanuel’s technical gift has earned him multiple awards. But the average fan could listen without even considering the precision behind thework, focusing instead on the artful tension and release of Emmanuel’smelodies.
Emmanuel’s technical precision, his virtuosic improvisations and his unusually broad repertoire, which encompasses not only country and bluegrass, but pop, jazz, blues, gospel, even classical, flamenco, and aboriginal stylesmakes for a most enjoyable music experience. Don’t miss this opportunity.
One superstar guitarist, one guitar, two magical nights of musical memories— these shows will be very special.
