Tommy Emmanuel
CLEARWATER - Following his popular PBS special, Tommy Emmanuel And Friends: Live From The Balboa Theatre, CMA’s Global Country Artist of the Year for 2011 and “finger style” guitarist Tommy Emmanuel brings his latest tour to the all-new Capitol Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 at 8 p.m.

Jazz guitarist Martin Taylor will open the show.

Long one of Australia’s most respected and best-loved musicians, Emmanuel’s award-winning career now spans five decades and multiple genres including jazz, rock, blues and country.  He is known for his distinctive “finger style” playing, using all ten fingers—a technique he was inspired to try after hearing his hero, the legendary Chet Atkins, play in the early 1960s.

In 1996, he and Atkins jointly recorded the album The Day The Finger Pickers Took Over The World, for which Emmanuel received his first of two Grammy nominations. In 1999, at the 15th Annual Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention, Atkins presented Emmanuel with a coveted Certified Guitar Player Award, an honor the Nashville icon bestowed on only four other guitarists before his death in 2001.

Tommy Emmanuel’s latest solo studio double album Little By Little was released in 2011. It presents 24 songs showcasing his brilliant and distinctive “finger style” playing, and features collaborations with guest players including Rick Price, Anthony Snape, Victor Wooten, Doyle Dykes, Dr. John Knowles (CGP), and Pam Rose. 

Reserved tickets priced at $45 are available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater, by calling 727-791-7400 and online at www.AtTheCap.com
