Rik Emmett gained international recognition as the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist with Triumph. The adjectives ‘prolific’ and ‘eclectic’ frequently pop up in Rik’s profiles, after five decades in the biz. Following over a dozen platinum albums from his Triumph years, he produced 19 more as an indie, ranging from rock to blues to jazz to folk to classical. International notoriety earned him entry into three Canadian Halls of Fame, a star on the Walk of Fame in his hometown of Mississauga, and he picked up a few ‘Best Guitarist’ awards in various style categories from different organizations along the way. Author of a GUITAR PLAYER magazine column for over a dozen years, the resulting compilation instruction book, “For The Love of Guitar”, recently landed at #4 in Shawn Persinger’s review of “The 50 Greatest Guitar Books”. As a music educator, Mr. E. remains humbly proud of his long-standing inclusion on the heavily-respected Humber College faculty, where he’s taught Songwriting, Music Business and Directed Studies; and he’s also been Artistic Director of the Songstudio Songwriting Workshop every summer for the past 12 years. This show will be an acoustic duo performance with Dave Dunlop.

A really enjoyable evening of of acoustic Triumph hits and Rik and Dave's newer music. Especially enjoyed the instrumental pieces from newer albums. So much so, I picked up one of the newer albums at the end of the evening.

Rik was fabulous. I was impressed at just how good of a band they are too. Got a chance of a lifetime to meet Rik after the show. All in all, it was a pretty damn good day.
