Peppino D'Agostino Concert, photo credit: Jarek PepkowskiNationally-acclaimed guitarist Peppino D’Agostino is set to appear in a benefit concert at the Foothills next month. We’re excited to announce that proceeds from this concert will go to the Lifetime Foundation! The Lifetime Foundation is a local non-profit organization which helps women and children in crisis situations.
 
The concert will take place on Friday, October 20th. We’ll open our doors for the Peppino D’Agostino concert at 6:30 pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to grab a glass of wine or a beer before the concert begins at 7:30 pm.
 
The Lifetime Foundation is one of the only non-profit organizations of its kind in the country. They offer educational scholarships to women who have tenderly made an adoption plan for their child. Lifetime Foundation also provides grants to hopeful adoptive couples across the nation.
 
Peppino D’Agostino has been voted “Best Acoustic Guitarist” by Guitar Player Magazine and tours the world. He emigrated from Italy over 30 years ago, to follow his dream of “playing with the greatest guitarists.” He’s now firmly planted in the “who’s who” of the guitar world, having performed in more than 30 countries, at prestigious international festivals and has played in some of the world’s most important theaters.
 
“Peppino writes wonderful guitar pieces. He’s one of my favorite composers for this cranky instrument. Plus, he’s a tone player. I love his sound…he gets the resin and the wood,” says Leo Kottke, another noted acoustic guitarist.
