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
The Music Box Theatre and 93XRT are proud to present John Lennon’s 70th Birthday Celebration. This multi-media event combines an exclusive screening of the new feature film Nowhere Boy, followed by a Q & A and concert performance featuring the original members of Lennon’s first band, The Quarrymen.
On Sunday, October 3, the Music Box Theatre will present an exclusive sneak preview of Nowhere Boy, Sam Taylor-Wood’s new film about John Lennon’s teenage years and the start of The Beatles, starring Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient).
Following the screening, the members of The Quarrymen (“The Band that Became the Beatles”) will participate in a Q&A session about Lennon’s life, as well as perform the same music they made with fellow members John, Paul and George.
This event is co-presented by 93XRT, and will be hosted by on-air personality and Beatles expert Terri Hemmert.
