Tommy Emmanuel makes a welcome return to The Helix, Dublin with a concert in March 2013. Tommy has become a regular visitor to The Mahony Hall over the last 10 years with many people from around Ireland making the trip to Dublin to hear Tommy’s music.
A child prodigy, Emmanuel began playing guitar at age four, and by age six was a part of his family’s professional band. Long one of Australia’s most respected and best-loved musicians, his award-winning career now spans five decades and multiple genres including jazz, rock, blues, and country. He is known for his distinctive “finger style” playing, using all ten fingers—a technique he was inspired to try after hearing his hero, the legendary Chet Atkins, play in the early 1960s.
In the meantime check out this clip of Tommy’s version of The Animals’ classic “House Of The Rising Son” interpreted in his own inimitable style.
