PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
"If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn't get any better than Tommy." - Jason Isbell

Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n' roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds
of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what's next. When you're widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what's next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today - a list including Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas,
Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Simo, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy
Bogguss and many more.

Since he and his brother Phil taught themselves to play as toddlers, the guitar has been Tommy's real first language-and he's more articulate on his signature Melbourne-made Maton acoustics than most people are with words. Influenced by the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins fingerstyle of guitar picking, Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band- covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. 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.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
"Like fine art, great music stays with us through the years to enjoy and to share."

"The best act of its genre on the music scene today", the Bill Pinkney legacy group still reflects the entire Legendary Drifters presence in the music industry and weaves a blend of nostalgic magic and on-stage excitement with a 21st Century twist. Today's sophisticated and informed music lovers reject generic imitations, and, accordingly, The Original Drifters remain in demand.

IT’S OUR TIME!

Symphony Orchestra Augusta welcomes you to the Miller Theater – a beautiful new home for music.

After a renovation project spanning more than seven years, the historic Miller Theater, which originally served Augusta as a vaudeville and movie palace from 1940 to 1984, will reopen on January 6, 2018. Expect diverse offerings that will engage, entertain and educate.

Love, attention to detail and generosity have fueled this comprehensive restoration project which reanimates the original glory of the Art Moderne stylings of the iconic theater and combines it with contemporary technology and amenities.

We invite you to become part of the continuing history of the Miller Theater.
