Description

Tony McManus guitarist extraordinaire and special guest Julia Toaspern on fiddle guitar and vocals.

Master guitar player Tony McManus has both extended and transcended the parameters of contemporary Celtic music. He has just been listed as one of the 50 transcendental guitarists of all time by Guitar Player Magazine.

“Tony McManus’ music is beyond beautiful, it’s perfect.” Tommy Emmanuel

He is visiting as a guest of the prestigious 2018 Adelaide Guitar Festival, and while he is here we are delighted to present his only Bathurst show - in Jack Duggans Irish pub.

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 world’s 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 genres.

Never one to be typecast, Tony’s new album Mysterious Boundaries is his most ambitious to date. An encouraging challenge from mandolin virtuoso Mike Marshall to learn the Bach E Major Prelude on guitar led to an exploration of classical and baroque. McManus has produced a work of great originality and beauty, hailed by his peers as “a masterpiece” - Renbourn, “beyond beautiful… it’s PERFECT!” - Tommy Emmanuel.
