Tommy Emmanuel, CGP


Guitarist extraordinaire!

SATURDAY | SEPTEMBER 7 | 7:30 PM

Orchestra: $40  |  Mezzanine: $35  |  Balcony: $30

Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes, or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London.

The guitar has been Tommy’s real first language. He’s more articulate on his signature Melbourne-made Maton acoustics than most people are with words. Influenced by the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins fingerstyle of guitar picking, Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead guitar, and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While some artists take ten-piece bands on the road and still fill out the sound with backing tracks, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.
