Tommy Emmanuel

  • Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult
 

This event takes place in 2021.

If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy Emmanuel. 

Tommy 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. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining. 

All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar you are in demand which has led to collaborations  with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today – a list including Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Simo, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy Bogguss and many more. 

Special guest for the tour is Jerry Douglas, a winner of multiple Grammy awards and feature player in the Alison Krauss band, 'Dobro's matchless contemporary master' is a fantastically versatile and inventive instrumentalist, his unique bluegrass style securing his status as an American musician. Although famed for his part in numerous different acts, it is as a soloist that he stands out as a true visionary.
