      EVENT DETAILS
      JMC Presents: Tommy Emmanuel Masterclass and Q&A (Ages 18+)

      Australian legend and international superstar Tommy Emmanuel will be doing a very special performance and Q&A, presented by JMC Academy (Ages 18 +). It’s difficult to summarise Tommy Emmanuel. He is an iconic Australian who's been touring the world, playing solo guitar in theatres around the world for over 20 years. From Nashville to Sydney to Tokyo to London. Over and over. Tommy’s musicianship and artistry are so vast, they cannot be measured. He can literally play anything and understands performing as deeply as he understands how to play the guitar. At the age of six, Tommy was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist, burning up stadiums in Europe with NZ/Aussie band Dragon. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a 'Certified Guitar Player' by his idol, Nashville music legend, Chet Atkins. Emmanuel has twice been voted 'Best Acoustic Guitarist' by readers of Guitar Player Magazine and honoured as a 'Member of the Order of Australia'. Keyboardist and JMC Lecturer Sam McNally, who first played with Tommy back in 1980, and then in Tommy’s own bands from 1987 to 1991, knows all too well the power and greatness of Tommy Emmanuel, the artist, and is proud to host this Masterclass, for JMC Academy. Sam will also lead a series of questions before opening up the floor to the audience for their interesting questions. “For me, music has always been about collaboration–the push and pull you get from another human being’s energy,” explains Tommy. “Even when I play solo, it feels like I’m playing to the emotions I’m getting from the crowd”.
