Tommy Emmanuel


NEW Guitar Camp in Maui!!
20 Jun 2019

In just 5 years, I’ve presented over 11 guitar retreats (or camps). I’ve hosted them in the Catskills Mountains, the California coast, the highlands of Scotland, the magical island of Cuba, the banks of the mighty Mississippi, the Louisiana swamps, my homeland of Australia, and the Rocky Mountains. As much as I enjoy hosting these retreats, it does take a ton of time, energy, and work to pull them off. I also want some time to dream up a NEW kind of guitar experience to share with the world! With that said, it’s time to me take an extended break from hosting guitar retreats. Before taking this hiatus, I’m going to host one more retreat in one of my favorite places on earth, and we’re going to ring in 2020 with style. ‘The Tommy Emmanuel Holiday Guitar Getaway’ is heading to Hawaii Dec. 28, 2019 – Jan. 1, 2020 on the island of Maui at The Royal Lahaina Resort. That’s right…one more guitar retreat in HAWAII!

It will be 4-nights of finger pickin’ in paradise with guitar workshops throughout the day and intimate performances every night. The dynamic jazz duo of Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo will be returning as instructors. One of my favorite country pickers, Brent Mason, will be teaching for the first time at one of my retreats along with Hawaiian Slack Key guitarist Jeff Peterson. We’ll also have a VERY special guest instructor – Hawaii’s own Jake Shimabukuro on ukulele. There will be a Hawaiian Luau, beach jam sessions, and an exclusive New Year’s Eve celebration and show. They’ll also be opportunities to jam with myself and the other instructors and one-on-one mentor sessions. Mark my words…this will be the GREATEST retreat I’ve ever hosted in one of the most beautiful places on earth!

Pricing for this retreat will be a bit different than previous ones. We wanted to make this camp as affordable and family friendly as possible, so hotel accommodations and meals are NOT automatically included. There is a separate registration for the retreat and staying at the Royal Lahaina Hotel where all these activities will be taking place. The resort is giving all retreat attendees a significant discount, but you must register for the retreat first. However, you are free to stay off site at a different hotel, Airbnb, or anything of your own choosing. If you would like to eat lunch and dinner with the group, there will be a separate pricing for that option as well.

All that register by July 31st will receive:

-10% discount on your retreat registration and meals (discount does not apply to Royal Lahaina hotel reservations).

-Exclusive Tommy Emmanuel “Repeat Offenders” T-Shirt

-Exclusive and Signed “Tommy Emmanuel Guitar Getaway” Event Poster

These guitar retreats have been a joy to host, but it’s time for me to take a break. I will be hosting them again, but I just can’t say when that will be. I want to thank all the instructors who have taken part in these retreats, but most of all I want to thank all of you that have attended them. It’s been a privilege to play, teach, grow, and learn from all of you. I want to especially thank the ‘REPEAT OFFENDERS”. I love you all, and I wouldn’t be here without you! I hope you can all join me in Maui, where we all can “hang loose” for one more retreat!
