After stunning guitar fans everywhere with the his duet album “ROUND TRIP” with TONY McMANUS, BEPPE GAMBETTA returns with this brilliant new solo recording, “SHORT STORIES.”
In discussing the making of “Short Stories”, Beppe says, “I found myself singing in four different languages, composing new melodies or cross-picking licks, and developing an imaginary global picking path that moves from Giuseppe Verdi to Doc Watson.”
“The message is that no matter how times change and how uncertain they become, the best response for a musician is to press on with the art.

“A virtual United Nations of influences: Italian, Ukrainian, Appalachian, Sardinian, Celtic ».
