It’s been a cou­ple of years since Aus­tralian gui­tarist Tommy Em­manuel has been at the Myer Horowitz, but he’s cer­tainly kept busy. The 61-year-old vir­tu­oso, named “Best Acous­tic Gui­tarist” in two dif­fer­ent years of Gui­tar Player Mag­a­zine’s yearly poll, has been lauded for his fu­sion of folk, rock, blues, blue­grass and jazz, mak­ing a fan of the leg­endary Chet Atkins in the process. He tours and records hard; Em­manuel re­leased three records in 2015 alone, in­clud­ing col­lab­o­ra­tions with Dodi Battaglia (Dov’è an­data la mu­sica) as well as Ian Cooper and Ian Date (Just Pass­ing Through.)
