Tommy Emmanuel Background
Born in New South Wales, Tommy Emmanuel received his first guitar at the age of four and launched his professional career just two years later. His brothers also possessed natural musical talent, so his father formed a small family band and took it on the road. His greatest inspiration during these early years came from the radio, where he heard Chet Atkins playing. After years of touring Australia in station wagons, the New South Wales Department of Education insisted that Emmanuel and his brothers begin attending school. His professional career came to a brief halt, but picked up again after he moved to Sydney as a teen. Following a series of victories at local talent contests, he made a name for himself as the lead guitarist in Doug Parkinson's backing group. He also toured with the rock group Dragon before embarking on his solo career. His breakthrough arrived when John Farnham invited him to play in the Concert for Rwanda. He enjoyed a second breakthrough performing live at the Summer Olympics in Sydney. Today, Tommy Emmanuel boasts a strong international following, with fans representing a variety of cultures and age groups. His fans appreciate his regular updates on YouTube, where he posts solo performances and collaborations. He also has an impressive fan following on Instagram.
