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 the concert to one lucky orchestra level ticket buyer. $15 from every ticket will be donated to the Celebration Lutherie Endowment Fund and Pay It Forward Bank (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. But you can only win it if you come! And catch a GREAT act while you're at it.
