It is with the deepest gratitude and anticipation that NOFA-NJ announces its second “house concert” of 2018. Our generous hosts at Gravity Hill, and NOFA-NJ, will welcome Beppe Gambetta on September 23 for what will be an unforgettable experience. Imagine being among good friends in the beautiful barn at Gravity Hill, with its gorgeous views, one day after the autumnal equinox, listening to an internationally-acclaimed acoustic guitarist who shares our passion for sustainable agriculture.
Beppe Gambetta is a guitarist, vocalist, researcher and composer born in Genova, Italy in 1955 who developed a style of concert presentation that brings American and European Roots to speak together with one voice. In his unique approach, Gambetta blends energetic grooves with passionate melodies, giving new life to sources from different times, periods and places. In addition, the original music he composes gives contemporary influences to traditional roots music.
For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting or hearing Beppe, here is just a small sampling of what others have had to say:
“Italian guitarist, Beppe Gambetta, is considered by many musicians in the world as one of, if not the best, acoustic guitarists. His talent, his taste, and his execution are superb. ” (Bluegrass Unlimited)
“Get him on stage and his fingers speak a language all their own. After all, he’s not know as the ‘Italian King of the flatpick guitar’ for nothing” (The Daily Times)
“… spinning a thick weave that sometimes calls to mind what a duet by Doc Watson and Leo Kottke might sound like.” (The Washington Post)
Reservations for this event are $40 per person. This event is a benefit to support the important work of NOFA-NJ, and it has been made possible through the generosity of a longtime supporter, Gravity Hill, and Mr. Gambetta. We will be serving desserts at intermission. Please join us!
Please reserve early!
