Tommy Emmanuel - Standing Room Only (Standing show)

“He’s playing the same 12 notes that the rest of us are using, but what he achieves with it is pretty monumental.” --Joe Satriani

“He’s one of the best guitar players I’ve ever seen.” --Chet Atkins

Grammy Award winner Tommy Emmanuel is a virtuoso guitarist whose real-time exuberance and infectious joy illuminates everything he does. He is known for his ability to play three parts at once with pure heart and real soul. His fans love his unbound talent and the magic he brings to every performance. His 2018 album, Accomplice One, featured duets with a range of musicians, and now, his highly anticipated sequel, Accomplice Two, is set to be released. Tommy's new television special, Accomplice LIVE!, features some of his best-known songs and duets with accomplices such as Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. Tommy's transformation to acoustic guitar was inspired by his hero, Chet Atkins, with whom he recorded an album and was awarded the title of CGP (Certified Guitar Player). Tommy's talent has earned him multiple Grammy nominations, ARIA Awards, IBMA Awards, and countless "Best Acoustic Guitarist" wins in numerous music magazine readers polls. In 2024 Tommy was awarded his first Grammy

“When I was a kid, I wanted to be in show business. Now, I just want to be in the happiness business. I make music, and you get happy. That’s a good job.” --Tommy Emmanuel
