Tommy Emmanuel, playing and being interviewed on the BBC World Service Radio iPlayer. Chat's as good as the music - well worth 18 minutes of your listening time:

Apologies if this has already been flagged in a thread somewhere - couldn't find it in any searches!

Sweet! Going to see him again in Quebec City in May. Can't wait. A true professional.

I think he's a lovely player. Saw him in a tiny gig near York with less than 200 people and he was excellent. Have managed to learn one of his tunes so far.

This - though ***WARNING*** it's jazzy - I think is a wonderfull piece of two people playing wonderfully together. They recorded an album together but live it's just much more adventurous - Tommy and Frank Vignola

Adrian,

I had wanted to do the Montreal concert, but can't go that day (live in Nova Scotia - so QC it is. I had seen him at Theatre Outremont a few years back and was blown away!! Tried to go twice since(had tickets both times), but due to schedule conflicts had to sell. Nothings getting in the way this time!

Can't send you a p.m. GUEST Jim. But curious where in N.S. you live. My teenage years were spent in West Chezzetcook.
Tommy is an amazing musician. I have never seen him live. Just on You/tube.

Adrian,

I live in Dartmouth now so not far from Chezz. Grew up in Antigonish Co. Love to visit Mtl. when I get any chance. Too bad that I couldn't get there this time, but QC will be cool too.

When he plays "Initiation", it's an experience for sure. Get tickets!!

Jim
