Beppe Gambetta is an Italian musician in love with American music. He has traveled the world and even crossed the Iron Curtain to dazzle and charm music enthusiasts everywhere. After eleven CDs, DVDs, teaching books and collaborations with many other top-flight musicians, Gambetta is increasingly known as one of the true innovators of the acoustic guitar.

Tony McManus has both extended and transcended the parameters of contemporary Celtic music. His fiendishly dexterous, dazzlingly original playing draws on traditions from the entire Celtic diaspora – Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Galicia, Asturias, Cape Breton, Quebec – with dashes of jazz and east European music.

Together these two amazing musicians combine to create duets that demonstrate not only their individual virtuosity, but their innate ability to blend numerous musical traditions and styles into stunning new music.
