  • As a boy in Genoa, Italy, Beppe Gambetta somehow acquired records by the legendary American flatpicker Doc Watson -- a discovery that changed his life. His annual visits to the United Sates have since earned him the reputation as one of the master innovators of the acoustic guitar, both as a bluegrass player, but also as a "virtual United Nations of influences: Italian, Ukrainian, Appalachian, Celtic". He has been described by The Huffington Post as one of the "best flatpickers anywhere," and Bluegrass Unlimited magazine calls him "one of, if not the best, acoustic guitarists in the world."
