Kim Person, who runs Cimirron/Rainbird recording studio in York County, has collaborated on many projects with Australian acoustic guitar master Tommy Emmanuel. On Friday, the local television audience will get a taste of that work.
"Tommy Emmanuel and Friends: Live at Balboa Theatre," a performance video recorded two years ago in San Diego, will air on WHRO-TV, Channel 15, at 8 p.m. March 8. Person, who produced and mixed the audio for the DVD, said the show has run on a number of Public Television outlets across the country, but Friday will be the first time it has aired locally.
"We tracked that show on Valentine's weekend, and it coincided with release Tommy's 'Little By Little' CD that I also produced," said Person. She said working with Emmanuel is a pleasure.
"If Tommy never played another note of music, I would want him in my life," Person said. "He's an incredible human being, like my brother. There's a wonderful relationship we've built over the years."
During breaks of the broadcast, Person will be interviewed about the making of the DVD, which is to be offered as a premium as part of a WHRO fundraiser.
Emmanuel will also perform live at Harrison Opera House in Norfolk on Thursday, June 6. Tickets to that concert will be made available through the WHRO fund drive as well.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
