World famous Italian guitarist, singer and composer Beppe Gambetta returns to Kingston for another unique musical performance. If you were lucky enough to attend last year’s sold-out show with Tony McManus, then you know what we mean!
Beppe is a master of the American “flat-picking” style, but doesn’t limit himself to flat-picking and guitar pyrotechnics alone. His charm and engaging personality make him a great entertainer and help make every performance a unique experience. He has performed both as a solo artist and with many prominent figures in acoustic music, including David Grisman, Doc Watson, Norman Blake and Aoife O’Donovan. In his travels he has collaborated with artists from many cultures and created his own amazing guitar style, a poetic synthesis of Roots music from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. He just completed a lengthy tour of Australia.
For this this concert, he will be joined by special guests Barry Mitterhoff on mandolin and Danny Weiss on guitar, both veterans of the legendary, progressive bluegrass band Skyline, which featured banjo innovator Tony Trischka.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for 24-and-under, with ID. All proceeds go directly to the musicians.
