Beppe Gambetta on Saturday, February 5
The Jenkins House Concert series is pleased to welcome Beppe Gambetta to the Upper West Side from his new home in the hills of western New Jersey. Born in Genoa, Italy, Beppe has long been a student of traditional American roots music. His flat-picking guitar and vocal style reflect this and other influences which make Beppe a truly unique and sought after concert performer. Please join us on February 5 at 8:00.
RSVP to Sandilion49@gmail.com
Reserved seats sell out quickly so please RSVP as soon as possible and we will respond with the details. Some standing room is available for late reservations. This house concert is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
