The concert is scheduled for April 24.

Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel has a professional career that spans over four decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers.

Emmanuel has set sales records that have yet to be broken and performed with hundreds of musical legends including Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Keith Urban, Eric Clapton, Sir George Martin, Tina Turner, Joe Walsh and many others, as well as with the Dortmund Germany Symphony and the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Since 1984, Emmanuel has received a number of various awards and the best guitarist's title in his native Australia as well as many other countries.

Tickets to the concert can be bought at "Bilesu serviss" outlets.
