FogHouse Concerts Presents - Beppe Gambetta
On Sunday February 2, take a trip to Italy with me as chitarrista Beppe Gambetta brings his incredible talent to the FogHouse. Gambetta is considered by many to be one of the finest flatpicking guitarists on any continent.

Born in Genoa, Italy, Gambetta fell in love with American Roots music when he first heard Doc Watson play. He began his career playing in a classical orchestra for plectrum instruments, but crossed over to American music when he founded the Italian Bluegrass band, Red Wine. In 1988 he launched his solo career. After eleven CDs, several instructional DVDs on the Homespun label, as well as teaching books, he has become known as one of the true master innovators of the acoustic guitar.

Gambetta still lives in his native Genoa, but spends part of the year in North America. He has played numerous festivals and prestigious halls such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and appeared on NPRs All Things Considered.

In his guitar technique, there are echoes of Doc Watson as well as Moravian and other folk music. Gambetta incorporates intricate cross-picking patterns, open tunings, and fluid slides up and down the neck of the guitar.

In his concerts, Gambetta alternates his flashy guitar pieces with songs in Italian or English. He brings to his playing and singing an intimate sense of emotions, along with his Italian charm and humor. He doesnt rely solely on his high level of technical excellence, not afraid to show his innermost feelings in a playful way, always exploring and innovating while staying firmly rooted in musical tradition.

Since 2001 Beppe has hosted an annual Acoustic Night festival in Genoa drawing audiences of thousands. Some of the finest talent from around the world join Beppe onstage such as Tim OBrien, Aoife Odonovan, Tony McManus, Frank Vignola, Patty Larkin, Mike Marshall, and Missy Raines, just to name a few.

Come hear for yourself why these great artists want to share the stage with Beppe Gambetta.

Get him on a stage and his fingers speak a language all their own. After all, hes not known as the Italian King of the flatpick guitar for nothing.
