Peppino D’Agostino is a superb guitarist and composer whose music blends folk, classical and jazz. He is constantly opening new musical doors and his hands are constantly searching and experimenting. His original music and songs take his audiences to ever-expanding heights. Peppino’s live performances combine beautiful, complex, and up-tempo original instrumentals with memorable arrangements and engaging songs. His music is beautifully addictive, his personality charming, his talent extraordinary.
Peppino has performed in more than 30 countries, and at the most prestigious international festivals and theaters worldwide. Already firmly planted in the Who’s Who of great fingerstyle guitarists, he was voted Best Acoustic Guitarist by readers of Guitar Player Magazine and recognized by the magazine as the guitarist’s guitarist for his simultaneous immersion in the classical guitar and rock worlds.
But don’t just hear it from us. Leo Kottke says, He’s one of my favorite composers for this cranky instrument… I love his sound. Tommy Emmanuel agrees, Peppino’s music is deep and beautiful. Folk guitar hero Pierre Bensusan says, The music Peppino creates is, like him, generous, lyrical and abundant.
Peppino is a Folk Project favorite and we’re thrilled to have him back on The Stayaway. If you missed him last time, don’t make the same mistake twice. This will be a great performance by an astounding talent.
