Tommy Emmanuel & Friends at The Capitol Theatre , 12/07/15
Tommy Emmanuel & friends put on a show of shows this evening at the Capitol Theatre … first set was Tommy solo and it was simply incredible. This was a bucket list moment for me, first time seeing him live, won’t be the last! Didn’t mind putting the camera down after the first 3 tonight … wonderful to just sit back and listen.
This tour is the holiday special and the second set was equally impressive with Pat Bergeson (incredible guitarist and harmonica player) his ubertalented wife, jazz vocalist Annie Sellick and John Knowles as the 3rd guitarist and vocalist. Great mix of holiday standards as well as tunes from Annie and Pat’s collaborative efforts and John playing one of his son’s first compositions and Tommy was simply brilliant. Spoiler alert: incredible arrangement of Amazing Grace with Tommy on guitar and Pat on harp (his harmonica playing is as impressive as his guitar work!)
