Tommy Emmanuel

Roots and Blues 2018 Performing Artist

World Class One Man Band

An accomplished fingerstyle player, Tommy 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.

Playing instrumental music that works in any language and traveling nimbly with a small tour group of three – Emmanuel, a sound engineer and a merchandiser – he’s been able to build a global audience that encompasses not only Australia, but the U.S., the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia.
