Tommy Emmanuel’s "It’s Never Too Late" Tour Stopping In The Hamptons

Kristen Catalano

Grammy award winning guitarist Tommy Emmanuel will be visiting the Hamptons on Sunday, August 6 as part of his North American tour. Emmanuel will stop at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center where he will treat attendees to songs off of his new album, Live! At the Ryman.

Emmanuel's album captures a performance from February 27th in Nashville, Tennessee. "It was an unforgettable experience playing my first solo show at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville," Emmanuel explained. "I have grown up listening to the music and artists that made those walls famous throughout the world and it was an honor to play on that stage. The night was a lifetime goal of mine and it was made that much more special with the appearance of my two good friends and fellow 'CGPs,' Steve Wariner and John Knowles."

This night not only showcased Emmanuel's talent as a guitarist, but it also served as a landmark in his musical career because he was joined onstage by Steve Wariner and John Knowles. These three men are the only three living certified guitar players (CGP) and this was the only time that they were ever on stage together. Chet Atkins assigned not only himself but for other guitarists this title who he admired and felt contributed to the legacy of guitar playing.

"I'm so thrilled that we filmed and recorded the show, as John, Steve and I had never collaborated together before and this made the night even more special. The sold-out crowd just about lifted the roof off the hall and we all gave it our best," Emmanuel added. "The spirit of Chet Atkins surrounded us three with love, peace and mojo! I hope those who hear this recording will be uplifted and feel the love we felt for the people who poured their joy into the Ryman Auditorium that February night!"

Emmanuel has also partnered with Rolling Stone Country to premiere the performance video of Tall Fiddler, one of the songs from the album.
 
Tickets to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center concert range from $36 to $66.

Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center is located at 76 Main Street in Westhampton Beach. For more information, visit www.whbpac.org.
