Guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel announces UK tour
Date Posted: 12/06/12
Australian guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel has announced an exciting UK tour for 2013.
The solo performer begins the run of dates at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on Thursday, March 7th before heading to the likes of Gateshead, Manchester, Barnstaple, London, Bristol, Crawley and Halifax.
Fans in Scotland can book Edinburgh hotels for Thursday, March 28th to catch the last date of the tour at Queens Hall.
Emmanuel is known for his faultless guitar playing skills and mastery of the complex fingerstyle technique, which involves him directly plucking the guitar's strings with his fingers. He combines this with use of tapping the guitar to create percussive effects.
His career has spanned more than forty years, bringing him from the desert outback of Australia to wow audiences across the globe.
Emmanuel has been nominated for two Grammy awards and he still continues to find new fans through his amazing live shows.
