Legendary acoustic guitarist Peppino D’Agostino is coming to Foothills Event Center in Grass Valley on Saturday, September 21! You’ll definitely want to catch the stylings of D’Agostino, named “Best Acoustic Guitarist” by Guitar Player magazine.
Hailed as “a guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar magazine, Peppino D’Agostino doesn’t just play the guitar. He composes, arranges, collaborates, improvises, and has been known to sing a song here and there in English and Italian. “Once again Peppino’s music and stories from the stage captivated our audience!” enthralled Cathy Sherrill of Opera House.
With a stunning stylistic range that spans classical to pop music and incorporates a spectrum of folk, ethnic, and world styles, D’Agostino enthralls audiences of all ages around the globe. However, what he creates on the guitar makes the difference between simply playing and genuinely making music apparent in the most beautiful ways. D’Agostino will showcase his latest music, as well as many of his past favorites, when he returns to the Foothills Event Center in Grass Valley, California on Saturday, September 21.
Arriving in America over 25 years ago, native Italian D’Agostino has made an indelible mark as guitarist on the international music scene garnering countless awards and accolades. Guitar Player Magazine proclaims Peppino as “One of the 50 Transcendent Acoustic Guitar Superheroes of Wood, Steel, and Nylon.” In his playing and writing, one feels his heart, spirit, soul, and essence in every single note.
D’Agostino’s simultaneous immersion in the classical guitar and rock worlds has culminated in his most recent solo recording, Penumbra. The album is a mix of sophisticated, melodic compositions that are technically complex. The San Jose Mercury News deemed D’Agostino as “one of the most capable composers among finger style guitarists with a gift for writing emotionally evocative tunes.” The 12 song set launches the listener through a showcase of his soaring finger-picking talents.
