The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents "Certified Guitar Player" Tommy Emmanuel live in concert at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, May 15, 2022.
An Australian-born artist, Emmanuel's professional career spans five decades, during which he has gained hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Emmanuel calls his unique style of playing the guitar "finger style," as he uses all 10 fingers to coax a many-layered sound from the instrument that makes it sound like a whole band. After playing at the Sydney Olympic Games Closing Ceremony in 2001, Emmanuel came to national attention.
Emmanuel was one only five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player, an honor conferred on him at age 44 by his idol Chet Atkins. In all, Emmanuel's catalog includes more than 20 musical recordings of solos, duets, ensembles, cover tunes, originals, utilizing both electric and acoustic guitar. He has made several live performance DVDs, instructional DVDs and CD-ROMs, and he regularly teaches master classes while on the road.
