Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see two world-renowned acoustic guitarists at a local concert. They will perform a varied program including American, Celtic and world music played at the highest level of guitar virtuosity. Beppe has performed his unique and amazing flatpicking style with the likes of David Grissman and Doc Watson, while Tony is an acknowledged master of fingetsyle guitar. His latest album was described by guitar legend Tommy Emmanual as “beyond beautiful… it’s PERFECT!”
When Italian guitarist Beppe Gambetta first heard the bluegrass-style guitar-playing of the legendary Doc Watson, he knew he had found his calling. His mastery of that “flat-picking” style of playing is unparalleled. He has performed as a solo artist and with other musicians all over North America and Europe. In his travels he has met and learned from artists of other cultures, as well as researched, revived, and taught forgotten music from the past. Through all of these experiences, Beppe has created his own amazing guitar style, a poetic synthesis that reflects his work on the roots music of both sides of the Ocean.
Beppe met Scottish guitar legend Tony McManus while touring in Australia. Tony is recognized throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic music, both as a solo performer and as part of prestigious international projects. In Tony’s hands the complex ornamentation normally associated with fiddles and pipes is accurately transferred to guitar in a way that preserves the integrity and emotional impact of the music.
Over the years, Beppe and Tony have developed an artistic friendship driven by the joy of learning and blending new repertoires in a rich synergy, and fueled by a shared passion for traditional melodies.
