Beppe GambettaBeppe Gambetta of Genoa, Italy plays American roots music with extraordinary tenderness and warmth. His technique, “which echoes both Doc Watson and the Moravian folk music he loves,” according to Acoustic Guitar Magazine, “is characterized by flashy licks, intricate cross-picking patterns, open tunings, and fluid slides up and down the neck of the guitar.” He’s a flatpicker extraordinaire, but it’s never about the flash with Beppe; his technical prowess always serves the particular song, whether it’s “Oh, Mio Bambino Caro” with David Grisman or “All You Need Is Love” with Mike Marshall. What comes through most strongly is his abiding affection for the music. He finds its folk roots and plays it with deep feeling.

Beppe has a new album out, his twelfth, The American Album, featuring compositions by Norman Blake, Earl Scruggs, and the Delmore Brothers, as well as his own exquisite originals. He’s a talented vocalist who sings in both English and Italian, and he’s known for his charm and engaging stage presence. For an evening of gorgeous guitar, catch Beppe at the Freight.
