On April 23, Marco Bucci, the mayor of Genoa, Italy, appointed guitarist Beppe Gambetta an ambassador of the city. Gambetta was honored for representing Genoa all over the world, specifically in the U.S. Gambetta, who has performed in all 50 states, will perform for the first time at Pastorius Park on Wednesday, July 10, 7:30 p.m. He will be accompanied by upright bass player Rusty Holloway.

At the concert, Beppe will include songs from “Short Stories,” his latest album. “My art is strongly defined by my traveling,” he said. Singing in four languages, he will reminisce about his traveling life and will share his love of American roots music and his Italian heritage. Acoustic Guitar magazine even referred to him as “a virtual United Nations of influences: Italian, Ukrainian, Appalachian, Sardinian, Celtic.”
