About The Show
GA Tickets $49.75 - VIP GA Tickets $85 (includes prime seating and a pre-show meet/greet)
This two-night engagement is a spin-off of Emmanuel’s 2016 release, Christmas Memories and his 2011 release All I Want For Christmas. The albums feature new arrangements for Yuletide classics such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Jingle Bells," and "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" and new original Christmas songs such as “Let’s Make A Christmas Memory” and “Artificial Christmas Tree”.
Each show will feature two sets of music: the first will be solo, and will consist of Emmanuel playing fan favorite material, along with selections from his brand new album, Live! At The Ryman. In the second set, Emmanuel will be performing Christmas classics with his friends Pat Bergeson, John Knowles CGP, and Annie Sellick. A noted finger-style guitarist, Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords, and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but Emmanuel never plays the same show twice as he improvises big chunks of every show.
