The 2014 concerts in the Dynamite Guitars series offered by the Omni Foundation for the Performing Arts will get under way next month with the return of Tommy Emmanuel. Eclecticism is the hallmark of Emmanuel’s approach to repertoire, building on a foundation of rock and American country and then embellishing it with Aboriginal influences from his native Australia. His performing style involves the use of all ten fingers to provide melody, rhythm, bass, and percussion, reflecting the technique of country guitar legend Chet Atkins. This will be Emmanuel’s eighth straight season with Dynamite Guitars; and his program will be a combination of original works and arrangements of pop, jazz, and classical favorites. The program will also feature British jazz guitarist Martin Taylor as guest artist.

Emmanuel’s recital will be given two performances on January 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater, 3301 Lyon Street. Tickets are $48 and may be ordered through an Omni Foundation Web page. There is also a home page for further information about the Foundation and its Dynamite Guitars series. The Foundation may also be reached by telephone at 415-242-4500 for personalized service and seat selection. In addition Emmanuel will offer a two-hour workshop for guitarists in the lobby of the Palace of Fine Arts Theater on January 18 beginning at noon. Admission will be $100, and registration can also be made through the Omni Foundation Web site.
