One of only five Chet Atkins-Certified Guitar Players, two-time Grammy nominee, 2011 CMA Global Country Artist of the Year, repeated Guitar Player Magazine honoree and so much more – Tommy Emmanuel has no shortage of accolades. But no description does this stylistic chameleon’s talent justice! You have to see and hear this guitar genius to truly experience it.

 

And how can you do that? On top of tuning in to “Tommy Emmanuel: A Music Gone Public Special” on Arkansas PBS Tuesday, Aug. 17; Friday, Aug. 20 and Friday, Sept. 10, Arkansas PBS Foundation is making it possible for you to see him in person at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Monday Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.!

 

With outstanding seats and opportunities available, you can guarantee your spot now by visiting the Arkansas PBS Foundation Box Office. But we also have a special chance to you to win a free pair of tickets in our Facebook contest!

 

For your chance to win, visit facebook.com/ArkansasPBS and find the Tommy Emmanuel ticket giveaway post pinned to the top of our page. To enter, comment telling us what you love most about Tommy Emmanuel’s music.

 

The contest, which is open only to Arkansas residents will run from Monday, Aug. 16, through noon Tuesday, Aug. 31. One lucky winner will be selected by random drawing. Arkansas PBS will respond to the winning commenter’s post on Facebook to request that they direct message or email the station to claim their tickets.

Easily switching from blues to Spanish traditional guitar to folk and beyond, Tommy Emmanuel is a guitar virtuoso who easily skates between styles using his signature fingerstyle play. Emmanuel operates as a one-man band – threading three different parts simultaneously into his material – who handles melody, support chords and bass all at once.
