What's Happening

“The new performance will take place on Wednesday, September 14, 2022. All tickets purchased for the original performance will be honored for the rescheduled date. We hope you can attend the Tommy Emmanuel concert next September. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Tommy would have loved to be in Alberta in December but in the context of a Pan Canadian tour and different restrictions in each province, we simply had no choice but to postpone the tour.”  --Paul Chenier, Spank the Plank Productions

Acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, Tommy Emmanuel started professionally at age 6, rising through the ranks as a studio player and member of several Australian rock bands before he set off on a solo career.

A noted fingerstyle guitarist, Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but Emmanuel never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. ​

While some artists take ten-piece bands on the road and still fill out the sound with backing tracks, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.​

His idols are not just the great players, but also the great pop songwriters and singers – Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, The Beatles and their ilk. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining.

Please follow all provincial public health measures in place at the time of the event or activity.
