Coolwater Ranch, located in Ahwahnee, is happy to bring back, with the kind help of The Redwoods, the inimitable Beppe Gambetta, world renowned flat/cross picker, singer and entertainer.
From Genoa Italy, Gambetta tours North America three times per year, taking part in prestigious festivals such as Merlefest, Walnut Valley Music Festival in Winfield KS, The Four Corners Festival in CO, and Canadian Folk Festivals in Winnipeg and Manitoba. He has played extraordinary venues including the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville TN, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, and of course Coolwater Ranch in Ahwahnee, CA.
Beppe endears himself to his audience using his disarming smile, delightful sense of humor and extraordinary musical chops that put him comfortably in the company of Tony Rice, Dan Crary and David Grier. Beppe has performed with Doc Watson, Norman Blake, David Grisman and Gene Parsons.
Gambetta blends his love of American folk with ballads of his native country, taking his audience on a multinational musical journey that is, in a word, delightful.
Beppe Gambetta will be performing at Coolwater Ranch on Saturday February 3rd. Showtime is 7:00pm and passes are available at Oakhurst Feed and Mountain Feed and Nursery in Coarsegold.
Suggested donation for the artist is $25. As usual, non-alcoholic beverages and buffet style eats are available at no charge. For more information please contact Robin at 559-760-1134 or go to www.coolwaterconcerts.com.
