Legendary acoustic guitarist Tommy Emmanuel has announced an extensive 2024 tour, which includes an arduous (not for the audience!) fifteen dates in January, starting in Exeter on the 10th and spanning the length and breadth of the Isle.
The tour promotes his most recent album ‘Accomplice Two‘ which came out in April on CGP. Support comes from fellow Grammy-award-winning singer and guitarist Molly Tuttle, who collaborated with him on the track “White Freight Liner Blue” on the album. The follow-up to 2018’s “Accomplice One“, the new album features a remarkable line-up of musicians, including Tuttle, Billy Strings, Michael McDonald, Jamey Johnson, Jorma Kaukonen, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Little Feat, Sam Bush, the Del McCoury Band, Jerry Douglas, Yasmin Williams and Raul Malo.
“My accomplices on this album are all in a league of giants to me,” says Emmanuel, “They all inspire me to reach for the stars; to give my best while supporting them as they give their best. We all have a chemistry and electricity together when we play music. I wanted to capture this power in songs and performances that will stand the test of time.“.
Tickets to the show can be bought on the artist’s website. The album is now available at your favourite local record shop or streaming service.
