Tommy Emmanuel and David Grisman Release “Pickin'”

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP and celebrated mandolinist David “Dawg” Grisman have joined forces on a new collaborative album entitled, Pickin’ – available in stores and all digital retailers on Friday, November 3. This marks the first recorded collaboration between these two acoustic titans and arrives on Grisman’s own label, Acoustic Disc. Pickin’ reflects on both Tommy and David’s signature classical, Americana, folk, and roots stylings, but it also artfully merges jazz rhythms, jamming, and unpredictability in the mix.

Among many standouts, Tommy’s 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 track listing below and catch The CGP & Dawg Tour coming up this November.

Pre-orders for this record start at Tommy Emmanuel’s webstore on Fri. Oct. 13. The first 100 pre-orders will also get a free Tommy Emmanuel and David Grisman pick (as featured on the album cover). Order Here: https://store.tommyemmanuel.com/products/pickin-cd-2017
