With the concern of general health safety, we apologize that we must cancel the Tommy Emmanuel, CGP performance on Saturday, August 29th, 2020 at the Chautauqua Auditorium. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase. Thank you for understanding.
Anytime you talk to any of Tommy Emmanuel’s fans, whether musicians or civilians, invariably they will speak of not one but two qualities that define his greatness. The first, predictably, is his extraordinary guitar playing. Considered by those in the know to be among this planet’s greatest guitarists, his playing is simply miraculous, as it would take three musicians or more to do what Tommy does solo.
Which brings us to the other aspect of his music always mentioned: the joy. Yes, joy. Because it’s one thing to play these multi-dimensional arrangements flawlessly on an acoustic guitar. But 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.
