Tony Memmel and his Band SING FOR LOVE in Taipei, Tainan, and Kaohsiung

The American Institute in Taiwan is honored to present the legendary one-handed guitarist Tony Memmel and his band in Taipei, Tainan and Kaohsiung, December 1–3, 2017. Memmel’s Taiwan visit is part of the 2017 American Music Abroad program, co-produced by American Voices, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and the American Institute in Taiwan.

In partnership with the Taipei Department of Cultural Affairs, Chimei Museum, the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, National Taiwan University Hospital, and the Taipei Artist Village, Tony Memmel and band members Lesleigh Memmel (piano) and Joey Wengerd (guitar) will play three public concerts and a local hospital charity recital while in Taiwan. Acclaimed Taiwanese pianist Hsu Che-Cheng will join Tony on stage for an evening concert at Taipei Da-an Forest Park on December 1.

Although Tony Memmel was born without a left forearm and hand, he taught himself to play the guitar after building a cast out of duct tape that secures a guitar pick to his arm, thus allowing him to pluck and strum the strings. Today, Tony is an award-winning singer-songwriter, and his songs have inspired people around the world with their messages of perseverance, hope, discovery, and love.

The public performance schedule for the American Music Abroad Taiwan 2017 Tour is as follows:
