Hi Tommy
Just a big thanks. My wife, Hilary, and I took in your show on Saturday May 25 and had a woderful time. I must admit I am a johnny come lately fan because I only found you by accident (a happy one) on the internet when I was learning to play Classical Gas. I am glad you are considering comming back to Halifax Nova Scotia again because I am certain there are far more people who would love to hear you play.
The guitar has been a passion of mine since I was ten (now 58) and it is more than just an instrument. It is peace and solice in ways some do not understand. But I know you do. It shows in your work (calling). Your calling is a gift to you and more importantly to us who you grace with your playing. TC

My question is if Tommy has listened to Leo Kottke and what Tommy thinks of Leo's music?

Thanks very much, long time fan!

Hi Tommy,
I saw your show in Halifax last night-- loved it, it was a magical, emotional connection. It's a bit of a story, but an interesting one, I think.
I first heard your music at a listening post in a record store in 1993, & bought it: a cassette tape of The Journey. It lived in my car and I listened to it a lot as I did a lot of mid-distance driving. Your music was a comfort and a connection for me that there were better things out there-- I was going through a bad divorce, looking after 2 young kids, and looking for full-time work by moving & buying my own practice (I'm a veterinarian). Music has always touched my soul: I've played & danced all my life. Time passed, we got settled, I bought a new car without a tape player and stopped listening to your tape. I had tried to find out who you were, but this is in the pre-Internet days, and I had my hands full as it was-- single mom, 2 kids 8 & 4 yr old, moved to a big city from a town, and working my own practice. I think I must have listened to it in my home, but essentially lost track of your tape. And forgot about you.
So I happened to see the newspaper spread on your concert in Halifax the night before, recognized your name, and decided to go to the venue to get a ticket. I didn't know it was sold out until I got to the box office, and I was talking to the wait list person, when a man came up to me and gave me a ticket! His buddy was sick and couldn't make it, and he didn't want to "scalp" the ticket. So I had an awesome seat centre front just far enough back that we didn't have to stretch our necks up to see. He owns a small local music store & teaches guitar. I'd never met him before.
And then the magic of your music happened. I was in a very bad place emotionally the day before, from overwork & financial worries, and the sunshine of your music put it all in perspective for me. I feel re-energized and I want you to know that you've touched my soul. Again. And now I know where to find you, and say thank you. (I found my tape too! I also bought a couple of CD's to catch up; you signed one for me). Keep making the magic happen! I love your smile-- I was smiling right back at you for the whole concert-- when my jaw wasn't on the floor in amazement at your virtuosity! Your energy is astounding, and precious. Thank you for sharing your energy! Laura

Hi Tommy, if you hear this.

I think i can play. My desire is to get to play the "piece" as you do, a chance to learn the playing as it is done "by you". I'd love to learn something from you to give someone else a thing or two to share. Atm my life keep going to the pointless side of drinking and all that talent which was pointed by my past bro, which i never wanna accept,is fading. i wish to make use of it. Can i ask a spare moment of your life and dedigate myself a while to see if i can find myself? Even that im me heh?

It was my distinct pleasure to once again see another incredible performance by the best guitarist in the world. I first saw Tommy in Toronto several years ago and vowed then that if I ever had the opportunity, I would see him perform again. And I did, May 24, 2013, here in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada! As expected, it was another awesome show!
No one can deny his skill and talent but it is very hard to describe the feeling I've had just being his presence. He had me, and the rest of the audience, in the palm of his hand the whole time. I admire his dedication as well as his charismatic and personable interaction with his fans. Thank you, Mr. Emmanuel, for another fabulous performance and for just being who you are!!

Hello, Bonsoir Tommy and the band...
Sometime in 2012 after a friend introduce me to the Wall(the song), I saw you on YouTube, I spontaneously from this site, invited you to come to Moncton. I can now say my wish came true. I am very grateful to all who made this happen. I was at your performance in Moncton. You were so wonderfully amazing. You are a sweet guy with a strong heart. What a joy to see your love for the music passing through your finger to your toes. I hope she kissed you for me...your assistant stage manager as I asked her to do so. You said life come to you, little by little. It was an act of faith that I was able to see you in concert. I bought the last ticket left on main floor 4 days before the show. I will share the instructional book and cd with my 6 months old guitar teacher. You are an inspiration for both of us. Blessings to you and your loved ones. Clairexoxox
