Tommy Emmanuel & David Grisman have joined forces for a new album and tour. Pickin’, which represents the first recorded collaboration between the celebrated guitarist and mandolin player will be released this Friday, November 3. This is also the day when the pair kick off their CGP & Dawg Tour (Emmanuel is known as “CGP,” since he was one of only five musicians identified by his mentor, Chet Atkins, as a Certified Guitar Player while Jerry Garcia first identified Grisman as “Dawg”).
