Music fans can spend an evening with Tony Emmanuel at the Corn Exchange, in Cambridge.
Emmanuel is one of Australia’s most respected and best-loved musicians, his award-winning career spans five decades and multiple genres including jazz, rock, blues, and country.
He is appearing in Cambridge on Thursday, January 22, at 7.30pm.
Emmanuel is known for his distinctive ‘finger style’ playing, using all 10 fingers - a technique he was inspired to try after hearing his hero, the legendary Chet Atkins, play in the early 1960s.
Atkins became a mentor to Emmanuel after they met in the 80s and presented him with a coveted Certified Guitar Player Award, an honour the Nashville icon bestowed on only four other guitarists before his death in 2001.
