An Outstanding Tommy Emmanuel Concert
Yesterday evening we treated ourselves to a wonderful evening out with friends, up at the home of the Patriots Football team, in Foxborough, Ma. Our friend John is very ahead of the curve, & comes up with the names of performers who we have never heard of, last night was no exception. The concert we attended was a true breath of fresh air, to our auditory senses. We saw Tommy Emmanuel featuring his brother Phil Emmanuel & the Australian All Stars.
The performance was truly a wow, all the way, as Tommy Emmanuel from the land down under, is considered to be one of the best guitarists in the world. I'm really no music expert here, I only know what's got the magic when I hear it, & this particular artist, along with his brother Phil were given guitars to play by their mother Victoria, when they were just boys, & have never stopped.... True story, & a most amazing talented group they are!
If you ever have the opportunity to see them perform live or even catch them on a music special, do so, as they will take you down the miles of years of rock & roll, from the 50's to the present, electric, & acoustical, whichever it is you get to hear, you'll have your favorites of course, as I certainly have, as I just love that 50's sound, & when they do it, it not only brings you back, but it's present, fresh, & real.
