Tommy Emmanuel returns to Arkansas Nov. 15

Posted 28 Oct 2021

Tickets to Fayetteville concert available from Arkansas PBS

CONWAY, Ark. (Arkansas PBS) — Tickets are now available from Arkansas PBS for Tommy Emmanuel live with special guest Richard Smith at Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville Monday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m.


Considered one of the finest acoustic guitar players in the world, Australia native Emmanuel is a two-time Grammy Award nominee, has earned four Platinum and Gold albums, and was named CMA Global Country Artist of the Year in 2011. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans five decades and continues to intersect with many of the finest musicians throughout the world.


Tickets for the Nov. 15 performance at Walton Arts Center are available from Arkansas PBS on a first come, first served basis for a donation of $55 for floor seating or $35 for balcony seating. Additional information and ticket reservations are available by visiting or calling 800-662-2386.


Emmanuel's unique style, dubbed simply “finger style,” is akin to playing guitar in a manner similar to how a pianist plays piano, using all 10 fingers. Rather than using a full band for melody, rhythm, bass and drum pieces, Emmanuel plays every part on one guitar.


This concert is a fundraiser for the Arkansas PBS Foundation, and all proceeds will support programming on Arkansas’s only statewide public media network.
