Waikato News - - COMMUNITY -

Two-time Grammy nom­i­nee Tommy Em­manuel is set to un­leash his supreme gui­tar tal­ent on an ea­gerly await­ing au­di­ences in Hamil­ton and Auck­land and we have a dou­ble pass up for grabs to his Hamil­ton con­cert

He cap­ti­vates his au­di­ence as one of the­most out­stand­ing solo per­form­er­swith his unique and inim­itable style.

One of the­world’s finest gui­tarists and per­form­ers, Tommy Em­manuel is one of Aus­tralia’s top most re­spected mu­si­cians. He’s played along­side Keith Ur­ban, Dragon (part of the band for 3 years), Air Sup­ply, Eric Clap­ton, John Denver, John Farn­ham, Hank Marvin (The Shad­ows) Les Paul and many more.

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! 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.
