The Curry Coastal Pilot

Beppe Gambetta - singer, songwriter, master guitar player - will perform in concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Pistol River Friendship Hall, 24252 Carpenterville Road.

According to a news release from the Pistol River Concert Association, Gambetta is continually composing his personal mosaic of sounds and flavors. From his background as an Italian musician with an interest in both American roots music as well as the music of his native country, he has traveled the world and even crossed the "Iron Curtain" to entertain music enthusiasts everywhere.

After 11 CDs, DVDs, teaching books, performances in prestigious American festivals and on radio shows "All Things Considered" and "E-Town", Gambetta is increasingly known as one of the live, master-innovators of the acoustic guitar, the news release said.

Gambetta creates a musical "koinandeacute;" (fusion) where American roots music and Ligurian tradition, emigration songs and folk ballads, steel string guitars and vintage harp guitars not only coexist, but interact, the news release said.

Tickets are $15 and available at Wright's Custom Framing and Art Supplies in Brookings and at Gold Beach Books in Gold Beach. Tickets may also be reserved online at or by calling 541-247-2848.
