Tony McManus
Obwohl die Gitarre in der keltischen Stilrichtung eine eher untergeordnete Rolle spielt, hat sich Tony McManus den Ruf als einer der weltbesten Gitarristen in der traditionellen keltischen Musik erarbeitet. Es ist ihm in einzigartiger Perfektion gelungen, die komplexe Ornamentik, die üblicherweise mit Geige und Flöte assoziiert wird, treffsicher auf die Gitarre zu übertragen. So bleiben Charakter und Emotionalität der keltischen Musik in seinem Spiel lebendig.


To find a unique voice on so ubiquitous an instrument as the acoustic guitar is quite an achievement: to do so within a centuries-old idiom where the instrument has no real history is truly remarkable. In little over ten years as a professional musician, Tony McManus has come to be recognised throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic music.
From early childhood, his twin obsessions of traditional music and acoustic guitar have worked together to produce a startlingly original approach to this ancient art. In Tony’s hands, the complex ornamentation normally associated with fiddles and pipes are accurately transferred to guitar in a way that preserves the integrity and emotional impact of the music.
Whether on a stage, recording in the studio or behind a mixing desk, Tony McManus brings a deep respect for traditional music to bear on all he does. Wherever his journey takes him next, it is sure to be an exciting ride.
