Join us this spring at the Kalamazoo State Theatre for a performance by Australian guitarist, songwriter and occasional singer, Tommy Emmanuel!
Best known for his complex fingerstyle technique, energetic performances and the use of percussive effects on the guitar, Emmanuel has carved out his own style as a solo artist in recent years, releasing award-winning albums and singles.
The accomplished artist threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. Emmanuel’s technical gift and skill has earned him multiple awards from Guitar Player magazine and made him a Member of the Order of Australia.
Dobro master and 14-time GRAMMY winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar, elevating, transforming, and reinventing the instrument in countless ways. Additionally, Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording and touring artist whose output incorporates elements of country, bluegrass, rock, jazz, blues, and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.
