Tommy Emmanuel
Synopsis

Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of the world’s all-time guitar greats. Tommy is voted “Favourite Acoustic Guitarist”in both Guitar Player Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s reader polls, and is a YouTube sensation. His videos have over 29,000,000 views and have led to sold out shows all over the world.

Tommy’s legendary career spans five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. 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.

Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to try this “fingerpicker” style as a child. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel’s biggest fans. Tommy Emmanuel is an honorary Kentucky Colonel, a CGP (Certified Guitar Player – a title given by Chet Atkins), an Order of Australia Medalist (AM) and the holder of both an honorary Master’s Degree (MA) and more recently an honorary Doctor of Arts (DR) from Charles Stuart University in recognition of his commitment to rural Australia and his contribution to music education.

Tommy has also been seen all over the United States in his Public Television pledge specials “Center Stage” and “Tommy Emmanuel and Friends.”
