Beppe Gambetta brings American and European Roots together in a blend of energetic grooves and passionate melodies, giving new life to wide range international and American musical sources. He is songwriter of great depth and maturity, whose original songs seamlessly blend contemporary influences with traditional roots. His flatpicking styles range from Doc Watson to Moravian folk music to everything in between and beyond. and are characterized by flashy licks, intricate cross-picking patterns, open tunings, and fluid slides up and down the neck of the guitar.

Born in Genoa, Italy, he is known worldwide as a bluegrass ambassador, having performed with such luminaries as Norman Blake, Mike Marshall, David Grisman, Charles Sawtelle, John Jorgenson, David Grier, Tony Trischka, Dan Crary, Gene Parsons of the Byrds, and more.

Chris Newman is a renowned Celtic guitarist, famed internationally as a member of The Boys of the Loch, for his duet work with Máire Ní Chathasaigh, and, of course, for his stunningly brilliant arrangements on guitar.

Acoustic Guitar Magazine calls his abilities “Dazzling.” Dirty Linen says it is “nothing short of brilliant.” The Sunday Tribune of Ireland called his playing “Terrific: brilliant, beautiful, rich, virtuosic, delightful, classic, perfect!”

Jon Shain is a veteran singer-songwriter and recording artist, who’s been turning heads with his lyrics, fiery acoustic guitar work, and his evolved musical style – combining improvised piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing, and ragtime.

A noted author of several celebrated guitar instruction books, Jon has won the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee and his band has performed with David Grisman, Tony Rice Unit, Hot Tuna, and the Dixie Dregs. He has headlined as a solo and with duo partner FJ Ventre throughout the USA and Europe, opening shows for John Hiatt, Keb’ Mo’, Little Feat, and many other roots legends
