AHWAHNEE — Acoustic guitar master Beppe Gambetta returns to Coolwater Ranch for a concert on Saturday, Feb. 3, as the local venue continues its tradition of hosting top-flight musicians in an inviting and exciting atmosphere. Presented by Robin Ralston of Coolwater and The Redwoods, the show starts at 7 p.m.
“In a world dominated by trends and logic of the market, Gambetta’s playing and singing stand out for their intimate emotions, communication, research in tone, sobriety and humor,” to quote from his website bio. “An inspired musician who modestly avoids relying solely on his level of technical excellence, but also reveals the innermost feelings of a brilliant playful mind that is always exploring and innovating while staying firmly rooted in tradition.
Throughout his career, Gambetta he has performed with some of the great heroes of the folk scene. After 11 CDs, plus DVDs, teaching books and collaborations with many other top-flight musicians, Gambetta is increasingly known as one of the true live master innovators of the acoustic guitar.

From his unique background as an Italian musician in love with both American roots and the music of his native country, Beppe has traveled the world and even crossed the Iron Curtain to dazzle and charm music enthusiasts everywhere.”
