Tommy Emmanuel w/ Mike Dawes
LIVE MUSIC AT THE OPERA HOUSE: Tommy Emmanuel 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. He brings a special joy to the stage and “He’s one of the best guitar players I’ve ever seen” says Chet Atkins. “If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy,” notes Jason Isbell. Rodney Crowell says of Tommy “With him, it’s all human.” Join us tonight for this extraordinary night with one of the world’s best!
