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
Quotes & Highlights
Watch the video for the Spin Doctors’ “Two Princes.”
Chris Barron is many things to many people: the voice of the Spin Doctors, the face of the jamband scene, an MTV superstar, an East Village troubadour, the author of some of the 1990s’ most enduring radio hits, a father and a teacher. But these days, the Spin Doctors singer is most at home when he’s simply playing rock and roll.
“You tend to write yourself into the places you want to play,” Barron admits. “There was a time when I was writing bedside songs for the walls of my room, but these days I am writing what I like to call ‘bar music for big theaters’—stripped down, honest rock and roll like The Last Waltz meets Exile on Main Street.”
