Celtic Connections 2020

An officially certified guitar master, courtesy of the late great Chet Atkins, Australia’s Tommy Emmanuel – now in his career’s sixth decade – ascends inexorably towards iconic elder statesmanship, even while still gigging 300+ nights a year. Recent off-road highlights include 2019’s releases of dream-team John Knowles duo album Heart Songs and award-winning bio-documentary The Endless Road, respectively revealing his lyrical softer side and battles with personal demons.

Texas-born, now London-based, Rodney Branigan plays around a dozen different instruments, but his remarkable signature party-piece is performing on two guitars at once. Together with rich, soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, his sound fuses elements of folk, rock, flamenco, classical, bluegrass and jazz.
