In a special concert for the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration, the incredible Tommy Emmanuel will play a fabulous 2 set concert. Tommy is one of the world's great fingerstyle players and an amazing showman, wowing audiences over 300 dates a year worldwide. Richard Smith and Pat Bergeson will be sitting in; if you caught them as the Nashville Hot Club headliners at SBAIC'16, you know you're in for a huge treat!
Tommy will play, sign and GIVE AWAY a re-creation of his custom Larrivee C-10 guitar at intermission to one lucky main level ticket buyer. $15 from every ticket will be donated to the Celebration Lutherie Endowment Fund and Pay It Forward Fund (see http://sbaic.com/tommy/), which assists musicians' and luthiers' air travel expenses so that we can bring you the finest music and craftsmanship from around the world.
