A two-time Grammy nominee, Tommy Emmanuel -- voted Best Acoustic Guitarist in Guitar Player magazine's 2008 and 2010 Reader's Choice Awards -- comes to the Lund Auditorium for an exciting evening of guitar virtuosity. One of Australia's most revered musicians, Emmanuel uses an uncommon 10-fingered style, known as Travis picking, first popularized by the legendary Chet Atkins -- who counted himself among Emmanuel's greatest fans and even named him a Certified Guitar Player. One of only a handful ever to receive that honor, Emmanuel has played alongside greats like Eric Clapton and Les Paul during a professional career that spans nearly five decades. Learn More
