TOMMY EMMANUEL and DAVID GRISMAN Announce New Album, ‘PICKIN” – out November 3

Esteemed guitarist TOMMY EMMANUEL joins forces with celebrated bluegrass mandolinist DAVID GRISMAN for a new collaborative album entitledPICKIN’-available in stores and at all digital retailers on November 3. This marks the first recorded collaboration between these two musical titans and arrives on GRISMAN‘s own Acoustic Disc record label.

Known for his virtuosic fretwork, fiery fingerpicking, and airtight songcraft,EMMANUEL continually shreds through boundaries with his acoustic guitar on these 12 new songs. Not only does PICKIN’ reflect his signature classical, Americana, folk, and roots stylings, but it also artfully merges jazz rhythms, jamming, and unpredictability in the mix. Among many standouts, his playing seamlessly entwines with GRISMAN’S mandolin during the first single “Tipsy Gypsy” as nimble picking converges on hypnotic hummable melodies. Meanwhile, “Cinderella’s Fella” swings from a brusque and galloping opening into a passionate and poignant pastiche of harmonious technicality. Check out the full tracklisting below.

In 2017, “CGP” (Emmanuel) and “Dawg” (Grisman)–as the musicians are known–linked up and laid down these compositions. Bringing this chemistry to the stage, the duo will embark on the 12-date CGP & Dawg Tour November 3-18 (all dates listed below).
