Full Event Information

When guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel throws a party for his talented friends, the result is musical magic. This once-in-a-lifetime concert was taped at the historic Balboa Theatre in San Diego and features an international cast of musicians.

Tommy Emmanuel is considered one of the finest guitar players in the world, and is celebrating his 50th anniversary as a performer.

Winner of dozens of awards in his native Australia and nominated for two Grammy Awards, Emmanuel has earned four Platinum and Gold albums and in 2010, was awarded the “Order of Australia,” the highest award given to civilians.

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Pam Rose performed two songs with Tommy, including her hit, "I'll Still Be Loving You."

Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo joined Tommy for a rambunctious set of jazz, ragtime and classics like, "What a Wonderful World."

Then Tommy is joined by fellow Australian Anthony Snape for a set that brought down the house and included Anthony’s song, “Frequency.”

KPBS produced the special in High Definition for PBS with KPBS senior producer Maura Daly Phinney and KPBS director Donn Johnson leading the team. This program originally aired in 2011.

Tommy Emmanuel is on Facebook, and you can follow @tommyemmanuel on Twitter. Visit Tommy's official website to view photos and videos.
