On Monday 4th March, world-renowned Australian "fingerstyle" acoustic guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, CGP, and Britain's Martin Taylor, MBE, will release their highly anticipated collaboration album "The Colonel & The Governor" on Mesa/Bluemoon Recordings.
The album coincides with a UK tour of the same name; which starts in Belfast on 2nd March.
The acoustic duet album stemmed from a simple idea: find songs that Tommy and Martin love and come up with arrangements that could allow both of them to, as Tommy Emmanuel says, "fly their own our kites," and have some fun playing together in the process.
