...Though he's shown over the years that he can keep pace with the Tony Rices and Dan Crarys  of the world, it is Gambetta's understated elegance as a flatpicker that has set him apart and made him an in-demand partner the world over, and he's as elegant as ever on Rendez-vous. (Sing Out! - JL)


Beppe Gambetta live at Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour

Genova - Teatro della Corte

Torino - Salone Internazionale del Libro

 ..NEW CD: "Rendez-vous"


iTunes, and many other fine On-Line retailers.
"Rendez-vous" is distributed in Italy in the best music stores by IRD


Gadfly Records

With Rendez-vous I'm trying to break the borders of the flatpicking technique in a creative way, experimenting new "full sounding" solutions to obtain a sort of a "plectrum-fingerstyle" sound in an unusual synthesis  

I have the pleasure to present to the listeners artists that come from completely different artistic worlds in a really stimulating combination: from the singer songwriting avant-garde of Patty Larkin and Darrell Scott to the Italian wave of the Sixties of Francesco Guccini, from the newgrass mastery of Missy Raines and Jim Hurst to the early-music tenor voice of Marco Beasley; from the button accordion of my son Filippo Gambetta to the guitar of the Brasilian maestro Marco Pereira and the old-time fiddle of Bruce Molsky; from the progressive European style of French mandolinist Patrick Vaillant to the ethno-urban percussions of Marco Fadda and the jazzy bass of Riccardo Barbera.
