Acoustic Guitar Legend Tommy Emmanuel Set to Release New Holiday Album, Christmas Memories

Emmanuel will tour U.S. this fall in support of the new album

July 11, 2016, Nashville, TN: On October 28, world-renowned Australian “fingerstyle” guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel will release a new album of holiday music, Christmas Memories (CGP Sounds), showcasing new arrangements of favorites such as “Jingle Bells,” “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!,” and “White Christmas.” In addition, the album includes three original tunes that are sure to become instant Christmas classics, including “Christmas Time,” “Let’s Make a Christmas Memory” and “Christmas Memories.”

With Emmanuel on guitar and vocals, the album features long-time friend and collaborator John Knowles CGP on guitar, Pat Bergeson on guitar and harmonica, and Annie Sellick on vocals. The album serves as a follow up to 2011’s All I Want For Christmas, his first-ever holiday album.

“Making this new album was such a joy for us,” said Emmanuel. “We had just finished our last Christmas Tour, and we were ready to go in and play the songs LIVE in the studio. Every performance is how it went down…no studio tricks or fix-ups, just honest singing and playing. This brings a feeling to the music that can’t be manufactured. It sizzles with fun and spontaneity. I hope the listener will get some of that. I also can’t wait to take some of these new Christmas tunes to the stage.”

In support of the new album, Emmanuel will embark on a U.S. Christmas tour in the fall of 2016, kicking off on November 29 at the Paramount in Denver, CO. The Classic & Christmas Tour will feature one solo set of some of Emmanuel’s classic acoustic material, and one set of Christmas favorites where he’ll be accompanied by Knowles, Bergeson, and Sellick. Tickets will go on sale on July 15 and can be purchased at www.tommyemmanuel.com.

Tommy Emmanuel’s five-decade career has garnered hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide, along with two GRAMMY nominations. Maintaining a tour schedule of nearly 250 shows a year, Emmanuel has been voted Favorite Acoustic Guitarist in both Guitar Player Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s reader polls. Emmanuel’s catalogue includes over twenty musical recordings of solos, duets, ensembles, cover tunes, originals, utilizing both electric and acoustic guitar. He has made six live performance DVDs, and six additional instructional DVDs. Tommy Emmanuel is an honorary Kentucky Colonel, a CGP (Certified Guitar Player), an Order of Australia Medalist (AM) and the holder of an honorary Master’s Degree (MA).

Tommy Emmanuel’s five-decade career has garnered millions of fans worldwide, along with two GRAMMY nominations. Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but Emmanuel never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every performance. Maintaining a tour schedule of nearly 250 shows a year, Emmanuel has been voted Favorite Acoustic Guitarist in both Guitar Player Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s reader polls. Emmanuel’s catalogue includes over twenty musical recordings of solos, duets, ensembles, cover tunes, originals, utilizing both electric and acoustic guitar. Tommy Emmanuel is an honorary Kentucky Colonel, a CGP (Certified Guitar Player), an Order of Australia Medalist (AM) and the holder of an honorary Master’s Degree (MA).
