A concert worth seeing

If an Australian guitarist named Tommy Emmanuel gives a concert in your city, go see it.* He's an amazing performer.

Few people in the US know who he is although a PBS special featuring him has given him some exposure here.

A couple of our videographers, the composer who does most of Boeing's original music, and I went to his concert last night in Seattle and it absolutely blew us away.

Technically, he is probably the best in the world.* But what impressed us the most was what we weren't expecting.* He is far more than just a technically brilliant player.* While he does several numbers in his famous "percussion/guitar" style,*most of the concert features*a wide variety of beautiful pieces of his own and others' composition.* Plus he's a very entertaining guy and relates well to his audience.

So if he comes to a venue near you, I highly recommend going.

RE: A concert worth seeing

He has a brother who is also an extremely talented musician.
They recently did a get together concert down here.
I didn't get to hear about it until it was all over.
