Tony McManus at The Firehouse Arts & Events Center September 2
Hailed by John Renbourn as the best Celtic guitarist in the world Tony McManus has been listed as one of the 50 transcendental guitarists of all time by Guitar Player Magazine.
Conjuring a unique but universal language from that most ubiquitous of instruments, the acoustic guitar, Tony McManus has both extended and transcended the parameters of contemporary Celtic music. Ranked by peers and predecessors alike alongside the guitar worlds all-time greats, 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.
The Firehouse sports a state of the art ventilation system and we are counting on you to know you're covid and sickness free to attend!
