Tommy is a class act. He makes it such a joy to see him perform for you.

Frank, when and where? I usually catch him when he plays Cambridge. Is he at the Jazz club again?

No mention anywhere about him performing in Cambridge. I got tickets for his Sept. 17th performance in Foxboro. It was either spend $25 per ticket for the Loge section, or $300 each for the floor...I don't mind an occasional nosebleed, so I opted for cheapo.

Elk - Tommy wouldn't say what guitar he plays??? Now that is odd.......he's been endorsing Maton acoustics for quite a few years now - he uses his own Signature model Maton so you'd reckon that he wouldn't keep it a secret!!!

I've also seen Tommy play an old blonde Fender Tele live too, I think it's a late '60's whiteguard from the look of it.

^^^ I suppose it's possible that he's endorsing Maton, but prefers playing another brand, which would be a good reason for not answering the question.

He's playing Matons in all of those pics of him that Harpo took.

The time I saw him he played his Maton for the most part and a black Gibson that looked like an SJ-100.

It's been a while since I've listened to his stuff...thanks for the reminder! Truly one of the best there is. I wasn't aware of his heart problems :( Will have to make it out to his next show!

WOW! He's got some pricey tickets. I usually pay around $40.00 and can almost shake hands with him during the performances. He is limiting his time with fans after the shows though. He used to stay and see pretty much everyone who wanted to get with him. Touring rigors no doubt. I love this concert:
Tommy Emmanuel Live at Sheldon Concert Hall - by Tommy Emmanuel - 20064DVD | Mel Bay Publications, Inc.
