Hello Tommy, I just watched your performance on PBS and I was enthralled by the depth of musical quality that you put out. I just had a look at your touring dates and I noticed you have nothing planned for Canada. It is my hope that you can put Canada on your map. Especially Edmonton, Alberta.....I believe you'll have a great reception here since your guitar playing abilities are so profound.....It's my believe you'll be well received. I hope you can get here.... Thank You for such a spiritual type of performance on TV.... I now have a new favorite guitarist to follow... Thank You Roy
ADMIN: Roy, Tommy just toured all of Western Canada in May. Including Edmonton. He was very well received and I'm sorry you did not hear about the concert. Tommy will be back in Canada in May of 2015.

Hello Tommy It's very pity not to see you in France. Why ? We are bad guys ? :)))) Thank you for your music Guy
ADMIN: Tommy has been in France many times, and most recently in April. Make sure you join the mailing list at http://www.reverbnation.com/tommyemmanuel so you are informed about when he returns to France. No dates are planned for the rest of 2014, but certainly there will be time next year.

We saw your concert at Berklee a couple of nights ago and loved it! You were so good to feature the younger guitarist from Finland and the violinist (hell, fiddle player). That was a very gracious thing to do, and they were phenomenal.
Please come again very soon!

Tonight was a regular Friday night in the sleepy hollow where my old man lives, in Torquay Victoria, and we get together with local guitarists (and the odd percussionist) when I travel down from Melbourne for the weekend. We knocked out a few tunes on guitar and sampled the local ales and our Home Brew. After a few Frothy's, we then got involved in a D&M discussion about the importance of uke'le'le in the music world, and I pulled out the laptop and showed everyone the genius of your musical buddy, Shimabukuro San. I heard about him after traveling to Hawaii and Japan in 2010 & 2012. Anyway, we watched him in amazement for a while and then stumbled across the duet of "George Gently Weeping". We switched to your YouTube videos and reminisced over your absolute genius and mastery of your art. My dad and I often watch your rendition of Classical Gas, and feel like throwing our guitars in Bass Strait afterwards!!!
Thank you for the inspiration and joy of music that you share with the world. If you're ever in our world, feel free to get in touch, we can guarantee a local audience in the coolest place on earth!!

We have enjoyed many of your concerts over the years and will soon be seeing you in Beach Haven, NJ. We respectfully think that if you added the song Drift Away by Dobie Gray to your concerts, you would light up the house! Not that you need this song to make your excellent concerts any better, but we feel that it would be a lot of fun for you and the audience.
See you next month.
Robert and Marcis

I dont know if you will ever get this message but i have hope
Im not sure if you know what is happening right now between Israel and Hamas.
Im from Israel and I feel that too much hate is growing inside everyone.
You are probably not aware for that but - your influence through music and as a person is HUGE!!!
You give hope to people by sharing your kindness and empathy to the world.
If you will ever find time to - write a song or just talk about peace and love (or just mention it somewhere) It will be so meaningful during those difficult times.

I was 4th row center at your second show at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. To my delight and no ones surprise, your performance was riveting. I've been playing since I was 10 years old, and should be much better than I am. I've been flat picking exclusively for a number of years and have a reputation among my peers, here in Atlanta, as a 'chordologist." I can't tell you how much I learned just watching you play in person; so much more than is possible from a video. And, when you threw your thumb pick into the audience after "Rainbow," I was the one who caught it. I have begun finger picking again, using that moment and your pick as inspiration. It's uncanny how fast what I once knew comes back to me when I concentrate. I intend not to pick up a flat pick any more than neccesary in the future. Thank you so much for your virtuosity, your enthusiasm and your engaging on stage demeanor. My wife and I were thoroughly entertained and amazed at your skill and precision. What a gift it was to see you in person. I shall never forget it.
I pray for your continued success and for your return (very soon, please) to Atlanta for another dazzling display of your musical magic.
