Sylvain Luc and Tommy Emanuel together!!!

I WAS THERE!!!  Incredible show. Sylvain was supposed to play with Birelli Lagrene. Birelli was ill so Sylvain played alone. The organization however was worried and they called Richard Smith who lives/was  in Germany. Tommy was scheduled for the next day and hurried from another gig in Holland to Raalte to assist Sylvain. Sylvain is an absolute master. He had no problems playing alone. Superb guitar player and great entertainer despite the language barrier. Most people in Holland speak English and German too but French is something else. With Tommy and to a lesser degree RS the show continued with lots of fireworks. Tommy had been looking forward to play with Sylvain but was also somewhat nervous he admitted since Sylvain is a monster player.
