The greatest acoustic guitarist of all time, Tommy Emmanuel, CGP, returns to the stage at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
Anytime you talk to any of Tommy Emmanuel’s fans, invariably they will speak of not one but two qualities that define his greatness. The first, predictably, is his extraordinary guitar playing. Considered by those in the know to be among this planet’s greatest guitarists, his playing is simply miraculous as it would take three musicians or more to do what Tommy does solo. Who else, for example, when playing “Day Tripper” can lay down the rhythm part, dig into the riff and sing the melody all at once on just one acoustic guitar?
Which brings us to the other aspect of his music always mentioned and without which the first might not be as powerful or as infectiously appealing: the joy. Yes, joy. Because it’s one thing to play these multi-dimensional arrangements flawlessly on an acoustic guitar. But to do it with that smile of the ages, that evidence of authentic, unbridled delight, is an irresistible invitation to feel his music as deeply as he does.
