Special Tommy Emmanuel Performance Airs on PBS This Week

“Certified Guitar Player” Performs at DeVos Performance Hall on September 29

Before he makes a stop to perform live in DeVos Performance Hall this September, fans of legendary guitarist and two-time Grammy Nominee Tommy Emmanuel can catch a glimpse of what to expect this week. US Public Broadcasting TV stations across the country will be airing “Tommy Emmanuel & Friends: Live at the Balboa Theatre.” WGVU will air the special on Wednesday, June 8 at 8PM.

Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Pam Rose was one to join Emmanuel during the February taping, performing two songs including “I’ll Still Be Loving You.” Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo also joined the fun before fellow Aussie Anthony Snape connects with Emmanuel to much of the audience’s delight.

Balboa Theatre is located in downtown San Diego, California. Built in 1924 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1996, Balboa Theatre served as a great place for a great performance. Click here for a promo reel:
