Beppe Gambetta

With America in his heart and his roots in the sun and the olive trees     of the Mediterranean sea, Beppe Gambetta naturally and seamlessly bridges the shores of     the two continents, creating in spite of the interposed ocean a musical     "koiné" (fusion) where American root music and Ligurian tradition,     emigration songs and folk ballads, steel string guitars and vintage harp     guitars not only co-exist but interact, weaving a deep dialog unaware of     any rigid classification.

Beppe has performed in prestigious rooms like the Ryman     Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New     York. In his career he has performed with some great heroes of the folk     scene like David Grisman, Gene Parsons, Doc Watson, Norman Blake and with     the band Men Of Steel: an international guitar summit (Dan Crary, Tony     McManus and Don Ross) of different guitar schools with complex musical     interactions.
