“The best Celtic guitarist in the world” ~ John Renbourn

To find a voice on so ubiquitous an instrument as the acoustic guitar is quite an achievement: to do so within a centuries old idiom where the instrument has no real history is truly remarkable.

Scots born and now Canada based, Tony McManus is recognised as the world’s leading guitarist in Celtic music. From an early age, his twin obsessions of traditional music and acoustic guitar have worked together to produce a startlingly original approach to this ancient art. In Tony’s hands, the emotions of Celtic music are beautifully realised through guitar, from the driving energy of a reel to the timeless atmosphere of a lament – each finds an authentic voice through his interpretation. Easily one of the most original musicians to emerge in recent years, this will be a very special concert from a hugely gifted artist.
