Coming to us live from across the Atlantic is Beppe Gambetta, whose smile is open, disarming, contagious, lighthearted and irresistible. So is his music.
Beppe is increasingly known as one of the true live masters and innovators of the acoustic guitar. His playing and singing stand out for the intimate emotions he communicates effortlessly, never allowing his precise technical excellence and lightning speed to interfere with the message of the song. His performance seamlessly fuses his mastery of American roots music with the music of his native Genova.
In his career, he has performed with some great heroes of the folk scene like David Grisman, Gene Parsons, Doc Watson and Norman Blake. Besides being a featured performer for All Things Considered and E-Town, Beppe has performed in prestigious rooms like the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and prestigious festivals like Merlefest in North Carolina, the Walnut Valley Festival in Kansas, Four Corners Festival in Colorado, and Canadian Folk Festivals in Winnipeg and Edmonton
From Tennessee to the Mediterranean Sea, this is a musical journey well worth taking. Join us for an international broadcast reaching from Genova, Italy right into your heart – wherever you are.
