Some bril­liant med­leys in­clud­ing While My Gui­tar Gen­tly Weeps/Day Trip­per/ Lady Madonna/ Clas­si­cal Gas.

Chet Atkins, Tommy's men­tor and in­spi­ra­tion, awarded Tommy with the Cer­ti­fied Gui­tar Player award — a rare dis­tinc­tion shared be­tween only four other gui­tarists in the world. The re­main­ing two, Steve Wariner and John Knowles, join him dur­ing the con­cert.

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 styles makes for a most en­joy­able mu­sic ex­pe­ri­ence.

One su­per­star gui­tarist, one gui­tar and a great new al­bum to share. One mag­i­cal night of mu­si­cal mem­o­ries — guar­an­teed.
