Tommy Emmanuel, Lexington Opera House
June 3, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Troubadour Concert Series: Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel and special guest Anthony Snape are at the Lexington Opera House on June 3 at 7:30 pm.
“The volunteers of the Troubadour Concert Series and Highbridge Springs Water present presents Australian guitar master TOMMY EMMANUEL for a full concert at the historic opera house in Lexington.
He is one of only five musicians handpicked by his mentor, Chet Atkins, as a Certified Guitar Player (CGP), he’s piled up numerous accolades, including two Grammy nominations, two ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association (the Aussie equivalent of a Grammy) and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader’s poll.
A noted fingerstyle guitarist, Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once.”
