An Evening with Tommy Emmanuel

Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia’s most respected musicians. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide.

 

Tommy’s unique style – he calls it simply “finger style” – is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays all that – and more on one guitar.

 

Tommy’s latest US release, a solo studio double album, LITTLE BY LITTLE was released February 15, 2011. It presents 24 songs showcasing his brilliant and distinctive “finger style” playing, and features collaborations with guest players including Rick Price, Anthony Snape, Victor Wooten, Doyle Dykes, Dr. John Knowles (CGP), and Pam Rose. Emmanuel has had an amazing career and has garnered numerous awards including a CMA Global Country Artist of the Year Award. Tommy was also honored with Guitar Player Magazine's most prestigious annual Guitar Legend award in 2009, as well as being named Thumbpicker of the Year for the second time. Most recently, Guitar Player's 2011 Readers Choice Awards named him Best Acoustic Guitarist for the third time.
