Tommy Emmanuel
Australian fingerstyle virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel, who finally became an American citizen a few years back, never uses a guitar pick, like his hero Chet Atkins—and you can see for yourself when he plays Clearwater on Saturday, May 14.

With two Grammy nominations under his belt, the 66-year-old released his Imagine EP last year, and will play tunes from that, and more from his nearly 45 year long career, at The Cap.
