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

It was an exquisite performance, and the musicians were top-notch; I would see them again in a heartbeat. The Mahler and Mozart pieces they performed sounded wonderful, but the two contemporary compositions were discordant and, while the musicians themselves were excellent, the continuously clashing notes contained in the pieces were an assault to my ears ansd psyche. If these pieces hadn't been included, I would have rated this event at five stars, easily. Fortunately the concert wrapped up with a calm, harmonious Mozart piece, and we left feeling soothed and, quite literally, on a positive note.
