Currently calling Nashville home, Australian guitar master Tommy Emmanuel draws out the full emotional range and power of his instrument, pulling inspiration from perfect imperfections and intrepid improvisations. A multiple-Grammy nominee, perennial Guitar Player magazine favourite, and Member of the Order of Australia, Emmanuel is one of only five musicians in the world to receive the designation of C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) from longtime mentor and collaborator Chet Atkins. “Technically dazzling and atmospheric” (Chicago Tribune), Emmanuel’s other-worldly ability to play complex melodies, supporting chords, and bass at once is matched only by the deep humanity of his music.
Blues, folk, and beyond, “the guitar work is mesmerizing” (No Depression).
