Tony McManus music is beyond beautiful, its
perfect. Tommy Emmanuel
Tony McManus is a master guitar player
who has both extended and transcended the parameters of
contemporary Celtic music. Ranked by peers and predecessors
alike alongside the guitar worlds all-time greats,
(English guitarist John Renbourn described him as the
best Celtic guitarist in the world.) his fiendishly
dexterous, dazzlingly original playing draws on traditions
from the entire Celtic diaspora Scotland, Ireland,
Brittany, Galicia, Asturias, Cape Breton, Quebec
along with still further-ranging flavours, such as jazz
and east European music.
Long applauded for his uncanny ability to transpose the
delicate, complex ornamentation characteristic of traditional
bagpipe or fiddle tunes even the phrasing of a
Gaelic song onto his own six strings, McManus is
increasingly being acknowledged also as a pioneering figure
in bridging the realms of Celtic music and other guitar
