Tommy Emmanuel

Wednesday 20th September 2017

With Two Grammy nominations, two ARIA Awards and repeated honours in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll, Tommy Emmanuel has captivated his audiences as one of the most outstanding solo performers you will ever experience with a unique style .

Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. 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 the work, focusing instead on the artful tension and release of Emmanuel’s melodies.

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 one of the most enjoyable music experiences. Don't miss this opportunity.
