Tommy Emmanuel is a virtuoso guitarist whose real-time exuberance and infectious joy illuminates everything he does...

…He is known for his ability to play three parts at once with pure heart and real soul. His fans love his unbound talent and the magic he brings to every performance. His 2018 album, ‘Accomplice One’, featured duets with a range of musicians, and now, his highly anticipated sequel, ‘Accomplice Two’, is set to be released.

Tommy’s new television special, Accomplice LIVE!, features some of his best-known songs and duets with accomplices such as Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. Tommy’s transformation to acoustic guitar was inspired by his hero, Chet Atkins, with whom he recorded an album and was awarded the title of CGP (Certified Guitar Player). Tommy’s talent has earned him multiple Grammy nominations, ARIA Awards, IBMA Awards, and countless ‘Best Acoustic Guitarist’ wins in numerous music magazine readers polls.
