Tommy Emmanuel plays the Bing Thursday night

Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel plays the Bing Crosby theatre tomorrow night at 7:30 with special guest Antsy McCain. Emmanuel is one of Australia's most respected musicians. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans almost five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style, he calls it simply 'finger style', is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays all that, and more, on one guitar.
