Description

August 27, 2011 - Enjoy an intimate performance by guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel, one of Australia's most respected and popular musicians. Revered today for his command of fingerstyle technique, Emmanuel became a child prodigy after picking up the guitar at age four. His playing took a new direction when he heard Chet Atkins’s recordings. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans, and eventually bestowed him with C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) status.

Offered as part of the special exhibition Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player.
