Tommy Emmanuel w/ Mike Dawes
Known for his energetic performances, Tommy is often regarded as one of the greatest acoustic guitarists of all time.
Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes—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. He brings a special joy to the stage, and Chet Atkins calls him “one of the best guitar players I’ve ever seen”. “If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy,” notes Jason Isbell. Rodney Crowell says, “With him, it’s all human.” Join us tonight for this extraordinary night with one of the world’s best! Opening act: Mike Dawes.
