PEPPINO D'AGOSTINO
A native of Italy, D'Agostino has made his considerable
international mark as a musical artist on the guitar since he
arrived in America 31 years ago.

To date Peppino has recorded 18 CDs, and performed in over thirty countries at international festivals and concert halls. He has shared the stage with such greats as Larry Carlton, Eric Johnson,Tommy Emmanuel, Leo Kottke, Martin Taylor, Roland Dyens,
David Tanenbaum and many more. D'Agostinos latest solo CD Penumbra was released by Mesa Blue Moon Recordings.

Peppino likes to compare his musical approach to the culinary art of his native Italy: If you want to prepare a good, succulent dish you have to know how to mix the various ingredients and, most important, have knowledge of the right amounts. Similarly, in musical composition you must be able to properly combine melody, harmony, rhythm and percussive effects with discretion and elegance.

People never know what to expect at his concerts. Peppino's repertoire is always changing, adapting to the rapport he establishes with his audience. His live performances, a combination of beautiful, complex, up tempo original instrumentals, memorable arrangements and engaging songs are beautifully addictive.

ADAM RAFFERTY FUNKY FINGERSTYLE GUITAR FROM NEW YORK CITY
"The first time I heard the guitar I was still in my mother's womb." says Adam Rafferty.

Adam's father bought a Martin D-28 guitar to serenade his expecting wife....and the sounds of the guitar surely found their way into Adam's soul.

Adam was born and raised just south of Harlem, started performing fingerstyle blues guitar at age 6, played in a hard rock band at 12, was ripped off by a club owner on his first gig at 15, studied classical guitar at 16, and by 18 he was a rapper on a gold record overseas.

But...In 2006 his musical life changed when he fell in love again with solo fingerstyle acoustic guitar. In just a few years time, he become a YouTube guitar sensation, racking up over 15 million views and over 50,000 subscribers to his channel. His fusion of acoustic fingerstyle with jazz and funk "finesse" make him stand out from many of the standard fingerstyle guitar pickers.
