Description

The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance is pleased to welcome the return of master Italian guitarist, Beppe Gambetta to Gloria's Listening Room.

The concert will be an intriguing journey through the multifaceted artistic world of Beppe Gambetta, a synthesis of the itineraries of his life, spent between his birth-place Genova, Europe and the United States where he currently resides. Beppe is a renowned guitarist but also a singer, composer, researcher who loves to tell stories about his journeys with a peculiar sense of humor and irony. Beppe shows in his performances a new and unique approach to the acoustic guitar, a style that he developed in a career of forty years of travelling, meeting with masters of many cultures, researching old forgotten traditions, performing for audiences of different Continents. Starting from the early studies of his American mentor Doc Watson, Beppe brought his flatpicking approach to a more modern development of plectrum guitar style, based on complex strumming, crosspicking and the use of open tunings.

The program will focus on new original compositions inspired from the traditions as well as revival pieces from his main projects of research about European and American music. Part of the concert will be dedicated to songs and ballads in different languages spiced up with new acoustic guitar arrangements. Beppe will also tell about the great inspirations he got from the encounters with folk icon Pete Seeger or the legendary Italian songwriter Fabrizio De Andre’, the travelling and studies in mysterious places like the wild areas of Sardinia Island, the musical contribution of European emigrants to the American cultural Melting Pot, the joy of keeping on writing in modern times new dance melodies or romantic serenades.

Tickets are $25 and seating is limited so advance purchase is highly recommended. Children 12 and under admitted free with parent or guardian. Proceeds will go to The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing music education and instruments for all those wishing to learn and enjoy music.
