Few guitarists can present Celtic music with the gusto and nuance they possess when played on fiddles or bagpipes. Tony McManus is one of those few." - Acoustic Guitar Magazine
Conjuring a unique but universal language from that most ubiquitous of instruments, the acoustic guitar, Tony McManus has both extended and transcended the parameters of contemporary Celtic music. Ranked by peers and predecessors alike alongside the guitar world’s all-time greats, his fiendishly dexterous, dazzlingly original playing draws on traditions from the entire Celtic diaspora - Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Galicia, Asturias, Cape Breton, Quebec - along with still further-ranging flavours, such as jazz and east European music. Long applauded for his uncanny ability to transpose the delicate, complex ornamentation characteristic of traditional bagpipe or fiddle tunes - even the phrasing of a Gaelic song – onto his own six strings, McManus is increasingly being acknowledged also as a pioneering figure in bridging the realms of Celtic music and other guitar genres.
From 49 Franklin:
We are excited to have this world class musician here in the Mystic Therater. Check his tour schedule; it lists. Germany, Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, and more, and we have him here in Rumford Maine. When Tom Callister of "Barrule" (Isle of Man Irerland) came in October he mentioned, "Tony is the most amazing guitarist I've ever witnessed, He plays lead and accompanies himself at the same time, it's jawdropping people will be in awe!"
