Tommy Emmanuel’s name will forever be synonymous with acoustic guitar and high-stakes showmanship. The Australian-born musician is currently on the road with a series of Christmas-themed dates, including his Friday, Dec. 8, engagement at Wichita’s Orpheum Theatre. His introduction of holiday classics and seasonal originals is but the latest endeavor for the musician.
He’s also prepping a new album, Accomplice One, for release on Jan. 19. The record features him in duets with Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Rodney Crowell, Mark Knopfler and Ricky Skaggs, among others.
