Guitarist Tommy Emmanuel to Give Workshop in Guilford

Guitarist Tommy Emmanuel to Give Workshop in Guilford

World-class guitarist and Chet Atkins-certified guitar player Tommy Emmanuel leads a guitar workshop at AcousticMusic.Org, 1250 Boston Post Road, Guilford, on Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Emmanuel is a native of Australia, but has been on an almost constant tour of the world for the past few decades. By the age of six he was a working musician playing in his family band, and he simply never stopped working, performing with guitar greats such as Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Les Paul, and Doc Watson along the way.

Emmanuel is best known for his dazzling finger-style technique, high-energy performances, and the use of his guitar as a percussive instrument. The workshop will feature a performance from Emmanuel, discussions on practicing and technique, and a question-and-answer session with the audience. Seating is limited to 45 people, and tickets to the workshop will be $100. For more information or to reserve a spot, call 203-458-8353.
