Tommy Emmanuel CD – Live! At The Ryman – performing Hamilton’s Claudelands Arena Friday September 22 at 8pm.
Wow – Tommy Emmanuel sure has a heap of fans out there if the response to our first CD competition is anything to go by.
Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is set to unleash his supreme guitar talent on an eagerly awaiting Hamilton audience and we’ve decided to give you a second chance to win a copy of his latest CD – Live! At The Ryman ahead of what promises to be a real stunner of a show.
Containing a mix of his most popular songs, fan favourites and covers, this 15-track live CD has something for everyone.
He captivates his audience as one of the most outstanding solo performers you will ever experience with his unique and inimitable style. It’s all faithfully captured here as he performs to a capacity crowd at the prestigious Historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Tommy had this to say about the show: ‘‘This is genuine. had to be there, no fix ups, no frills recording. Each of my guitars has pick ups and microphones included when you buy them, so the sound you hear from this recording is exactly as it sounds in the hall’’.
Recorded on the February 27, 2016, the album treats listeners to everything that is good about Tommy Emmanuel – something old, something new (Eva Waits – and it’s a ripper!), something borrowed, something blue – it’s all here.
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. Tickets from Ticketek. Competition by Fill The House Tickets Project – proudly supporting families of children with cancer.
