He will be joined by his wife, Susan, who will sing a couple of numbers as well as accompany him on the stand-up or “doghouse” bass.

Tunstall, reference and instructional services librarian at Tusculum, has more than 50 years of playing experience. He is primarily self-taught but has been mentored by a number of  individuals.

His guitar idols include Christopher Parkening, Chet Atkins, Rick Foster and Charlie Byrd.  He has personally met Parkening and Byrd.
