Michael Johnathon opens the show with a banjo rendition of the Porgy & Bess aria “Summertime.” Then turns the entire broadcast over to one of the most energetic, brilliant and entertaining guitar masters on planet earth. Tommy Emmanuel started his music career with his family band in Australia. His guitar hero was Chet Atkins, who called Tommy “… the greatest guitar player he ever met.” On this broadcast students will be exploring the magical, musical and percussive flavors of the acoustic guitar. A highlight of this show is 13 year old Parker Hastings playing toe-to-toe with his guitar hero, Tommy Emmanuel.
