Tommy Emmanuel, C.G.P. returns to the Meyer Theatre, Aug 15! Emmanuel is one of the world’s most accomplished fingerstyle guitarists. With jaw-dropping technique and mesmerizing stage presence, he has set the standard for acoustic guitar performance. 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. 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. His own songs are also illuminated always with lyrical melodies that go right to the heart, such as his beautiful ode to his daughter, “Angelina,” or his great “story without words,” “Lewis & Clark.”   Tommy Emmanuel is a CGP – Certified Guitar Player. This is a designation that Chet Atkins assigned to guitar players who excelled far beyond the normal line of playing. He handed this title out only to four guitar players in his lifetime.
