Tommy Emmanuel

Whenever Tommy Emmanuel is mentioned, the first thing discussed is undoubtedly his extraordinary guitar playing. His playing is simply miraculous, as it would take three musicians, or more, to do what Tommy does solo. The other aspect of his music that is always mentioned is simply his joy. To do it with that smile of the ages, that evidence of authentic, unbridled delight, is an irresistible invitation to feel his music as deeply as he does.

Although his expression is instrumental, he comes to the guitar much more like a vocalist, positively singing melodies through the strings. He inhabits the tunes he performs, delivering every nuance and turn of phrase.
