Tony McManus (Scotland) & Beppe Gambetta (Italy) – Live in Concert at South Coast Folk Club

Two of the
world’s hottest acoustic guitar players combine in a virtuoso
performance of world guitar styles featuring music from both sides of
the Atlantic, played with passion, beautiful precision and astounding
technique.

Tony McManus – Scottish born and Canadian resident Tony McManus is
the world’s undisputed greatest Celtic finger style guitar player
whilst Italian Beppe Gambetta is one of Europe’s hottest flat pick
stylists. Together for this special Australian tour they combine in a
virtuoso performance of world guitar styles featuring music and song
from both sides of the Atlantic, played with passion, beautiful
precision and astounding technique. Their total solo recording output
to date is over twenty, with countless collaborations and sessions,
the most recent from 2015 being their own duo album “Round Trip”.

Beppe Gambetta – Widely acknowledged as one of Europe’s foremost
guitarists, Beppe Gambetta is a true master innovator on the acoustic
guitar. Both solo and in collaboration with top-flight musicians
around the globe, Beppe has a style that’s memorable both for its
deeply emotive tone and for its technical brilliance. Beppe approaches
his music from a unique stance, as an Italian musician in love with
both American roots music as well as the music of his native country.
He seamlessly bridges the shores of the two continents, creating a
musical fusion where American and Ligurian tradition, emigration songs
and folk ballads interact, weaving a deep dialogue beyond rigid
classification.

Special guest act at this concert is One Up – Two Down. Three
passionate young musicians hailing from three countries joined by the
Pacific Ocean, George Jackson, Andrew Small and Daniel Watkins bring
raw old-time power with bowed bass, bluegrass dexterity and folk story
telling.
