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
With his latest album, My True Story, the legendary Grammy-winning Aaron Neville revisits the music he grew up with, and adds a few new spins along the way. “These songs helped to mold me into who I am,” says Aaron Neville. “They’re all dear to my heart, and they rode with me, in my bones, through all these years.” Neville’s first release for Blue Note Records is a collection of twelve classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style, and co-produced by Blue Note President Don Was and The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards.
This album and tour represent a culmination of Aaron Neville’s incredible career, which has seen him move seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music, the Neville Brothers. His first hit single was the landmark “Tell It Like It Is,” which held the Number One spot on the R&B charts for five weeks in 1967. He went on to win Grammy Awards for his triple-platinum 1989 collaboration with Linda Ronstadt Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, and reached the Country charts with the title track of 1993’s The Grand Tour. A member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, his most recent project was the gospel album I Know I’ve Been Changed in 2010.
The selections on the album include classics by such vocal-group giants as Little Anthony and the Imperials (“Tears on My Pillow”), Hank Ballard and the Midnighters (“Work With Me, Annie”), and the Drifters (“Money Honey,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment”). To Neville, though, these songs weren’t just the soundtrack to his youth; they became the underpinning for all of the remarkable music he has created across five decades.
