Tommy Emmanuel CGP

Bluegrass, Folk
This one-night-only 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.

Buddy Guy

Blues, Rock
Chicago blues legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy, now in his early 80s, has established himself as one of the music world's premiere guitar players, having influenced musicians since the late '50s and paved the way for many blues players to follow in his footsteps. The Louisiana-born Guy started off with a makeshift guitar, which was made from a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother's hairpins. He later moved to Chicago and got the recognition he needed from Muddy Waters, joining his band and becoming a house guitarist at Chess Records. The rest, as they say, is history. A major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city's halcyon days of electric blues, Guy has received seven Grammy Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him No. 23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."

Brian Culbertson

Jazz, R&B/Soul
Brian Culbertson's steady stream of top albums and hit singles should come as no surprise since he began playing the piano at the age of 8, which he went on to master, along with the trombone, drums and bass. Growing up, he was influenced by heavy players ranging from Earth, Wind & Fire, to The Becker Brothers, to James Brown. Since his debut album release in 1994, Culbertson has recorded on and/or produced over 25 chart-topping records in musical styles that have moved from R&B throwdowns to New Age lullabies.

The Wood Brothers

Rock, Blues, Folk
Oliver Wood, of the blues-roots band King Johnson, and Chris Wood, of the instrumental jazz trio Medeski Martin & Wood, grew up in Boulder, CO but never really found their own musical chemistry until after they'd forged their own, individual paths for 15 years. After years of musical and geographical separation, they decided to unite and create rootsy music that blends blues, folk and rock music in a way that melds their sibling harmonies and the music they loved as kids together into one package. They are currently on tour to support their latest release, 'Live, Volume 2: Nail and Tooth,' a live set collection to be released on August 28 from Southern Ground.
