AHWAHNEE – Coolwater and the Redwoods presents an evening of Italian bluegrass with the incomparable Beppe Gambetta.
The concert will take place on Saturday, Feb. 8 at Coolwater Ranch.
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, cross picking and the use of open tunings.
Beppe is a renowned guitarist but also a singer, composer and 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.
Passes are available at Branches Books in Oakhurst as well as Mountain Feed in Coarsegold.
The suggested donation for this show is $25 in advance, and as usual refreshments and “light faire” will be available at no extra cost.
Coolwater Ranch is located at 45680 Forest Ridge Dr., Ahwahnee, CA 93601.
