Since few years Beppe divides his life between New Jersey and his native Genova. Good part of his artistic inspiration comes from the long time on the road, the encounter with other artists and his extensive researches about different forms of traditional guitar. Following his vision he opened new ways to the Flatpicking World with an approach open to music contamination. He experimented new international repertoires, he composed new melodies, he brought back to life the work of forgotten popular artists, he used the aesthetic of acoustic music to give new life to songs that he sings in different languages. Beppe toured the World solo and with important partners (Dan Crary, Gene Parsons, David Grisman…) and since 16 years he produces with his wife Federica the Genoese Acoustic Nights, one of the biggest European shows dedicated to the guitar. In his 30 years of activity he produced 12 CDs, one DVD and a big amount of teaching material (books, DVDs, etc.). Beppe likes to teach his approach and his passion to the new generations and organizes and participates at workshops on both sides of the Ocean. Recently he published “The Flatpicking Sourcebook” in which he shows how Flatpicking can have a “transversal” approach that touches different forms of Roots Music.
