Tommy Emmanuel live at Vicar St
23rd January 2020
ESTEEMED GUITARIST, COMPOSER AND PERFORMER TOMMY EMMANUEL ANNOUNCES DATE FOR VICAR ST
TOMMY EMMANUEL released his duets album, ACCOMPLICE ONE earlier this year. The 16-track collaborative album features guest artists such as Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, David Grisman and more.
“It's been such an honor to work with some of the greatest artists I know, and some of the most inspiring people in music today,” says EMMANUEL. “I wanted to record an album of duets that could showcase my love of many styles, the challenge of rearranging some classic songs, and share the fun of total improvisation with players who do it on a level that we all marvel at!”
ACCOMPLICE ONE is a testament to EMMANUEL’s musical diversity, the range of expression that stretches from authentic country-blues to face-melting rock shredding, by way of tender and devastating pure song playing. The songs are a mix of new takes on indelible classics and brand-new originals from TOMMY and his collaborators.
