"A guitar isn't always a guitar in [Tommy] Emmanuel's extraordinary hands." --Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
"Tommy Emmanuel "is unquestionably one of the most gifted artists of our time." --Jim Ohlschmidt, Acoustic Guitar Magazine
Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia's most respected musicians. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans almost five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays all that - and more - on one guitar. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to try this "fingerpicker" style as a child. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans.
Seats for Milwaukee Public Television supporters start at Row 1 of the venue, and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. All tickets will be mailed 4-6 weeks before the concert date.
