BEPPE GAMBETTA & TONY MCMANUS
BEPPE GAMBETTA and TONY McMANUS are universally recognized as two of the finest acoustic guitarists playing today.
Beppe Gambetta was born in Genoa, Italy in 1955. An acoustic guitar flat picker and singer, Beppe has been called a “virtual United Nations of influences: Italian, Ukrainian, Appalachian, Sardinian, Celtic.”
Tony McManus was born in Paisley, Scotland and is now living in Canada. English guitarist John Renbourn described him as “the best Celtic guitarist in the world.”
On ROUND TRIP these two amazing musicians have combined to create a series of duets that not only demonstrate their individual virtuosity, but their innate ability to blend numerous musical traditions and styles producing stunning new music.
“…spinning a thick weave that sometimes calls to mind what a duet by Doc Watson and Leo Kottke might sound like.”
– Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
