Guitar Virtuoso Peppino D’Agostino Saturday, December 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Occidental Center for the Arts is pleased to present internationally renowned acoustic guitarist Peppino D’Agostino ! A self taught musician who emigrated from Italy in 1984 to pursue his dream, Peppino has helped redefine the boundaries of the acoustic guitar. His keen melodic sense, remarkable technique, open tunings and percussive effects are the basis of his unique and original compositional style which has been inspiring musicians and audiences alike for decades. Add to that his warm, playful personality, emotional intensity, and broad musical tastes covering classical, folk, Irish, Italian, Brazilian, flamenco and jazz traditions and you have the recipe for his dynamic “minestrone music”. http://peppinodagostino.com/

As a six string guitarist, composer, and arranger steeped in classical discipline, Peppino has had an amazing recording and performing career that has spanned three decades and garnered critical acclaim and awards the world over. He has released eight solo albums and 17 recordings. In 2016 D’Agostino had his first sold out tour of China, and composed a soundtrack for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. He has performed in over thirty countries and at countless international festivals and important venues. As a master teacher, he has published three instructional DVDs (his newest interactive video software Poetica Musica is available on his web site) , composed a movie soundtrack, helped design his own signature Seagull guitars, and collaborated with some of the best musicians in the world -Tommy Emmanuel and Leo Kottke among others. D’Agostino co-founded The Pacific Guitar Ensemble with David Tannebaum in 2010, one of his best known musical collaborations. “Peppino’s music is deep and beautiful.” –Tommy Emmanuel
