With 23 editions the
Beppe Gambetta International Guitar Workshop continue to
hold the ambitious reputation of being one of the leading European
educational events for acoustic guitar. The goal is to support a
community of music enthusiasts, to help the improvement of new
talents, to put in contact musicians with different culture and
background and to open new horizons to artistic creativity.
few years Beppe divides his life between New Jersey and his native
Genova. Good part of his artistic inspiration comes from the long
time on the road, the encounter with other artists and his
extensive researches about different forms of traditional guitar.
Following his vision he opened new ways to the Flatpicking World
with an approach open to music contamination. He experimented new
international repertoires, he composed new melodies, he brought
back to life the work of forgotten popular artists, he used the
aesthetic of acoustic music to give new life to songs that he
sings in different languages. Beppe toured the World solo and with
important partners (Dan Crary, Gene Parsons, David Grisman…) and
since 15 years he produces with his wife Federica the Genoese
Acoustic Nights, one of the biggest European shows dedicated to
the guitar. In his 30 years of activity he produced 12 CDs, one
DVD and a big amount of teaching material (books, DVDs, etc.).
Beppe likes to teach his approach and his passion to the new
generations and organizes and participates at workshops on both
sides of the Ocean. Recently he published the “Flatpicking
Guitar Treaty” in which he shows how Flatpicking can have a
“transversal” approach that touches different forms of Roots
