Over the years I’ve been to many great concerts with my Dad. He’s introduced me to some of my favourite musicians including James Taylor, Dave Matthews and the Finn Brothers and I always jump at the chance to go and see someone in concert that I’ve never heard of before. Tommy Emmanuel was one such musician, and when I went to see him in concert at the Theatre Royal a couple of years ago I was blown away. The things that he could do with a guitar were amazing and it was easy to forget that he was the only musician on the stage. After the concert I just had to hear more from Tommy and got some of his previous CDs from the Library.
Therefore, when I saw that we had just got Tommmy Emmanuel’s new live CD, Center Stage, at the Library I had to get my hands on it. The CD is fantastic and it was like being back at that concert again. One of my favourite songs from the new CD is a masterpiece called ‘Initiation’ in which Tommy shows the range of his guitar skills.
