The Chicago Tribute writes: “…D’Agostino plays steel--string guitar with virtuosity and complexity…Influences are as far--flung as the flamenco work of Paco de Lucia and the pop sensibility of the Beatles, evident in the songs he’s written, which brim with memorable melodies.” Peppino D’Agostino has performed in more than 34 countries, at prestigious international festivals, and has played in some of the world’s most important theaters. He has shared the stage with Tommy Emmanuel, Leo Kottke, Laurindo Almeida, Sergio Assad, Larry Carlton, and Eric Johnson, to name a few. His solo recordings include high quality labels such as Favored Nations, Mesa / Bluemoon, and Acoustic Music Records. Recognized as “the guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar magazine and described as “a giant of the acoustic guitar” by the San Diego Reader, in 2017 Guitar Player listed him as one of the 50 transcendent superheroes of all times. The CD “Every Step of The Way” was awarded by Acoustic Guitar’s People’s Choice Awards with a Bronze medal for Best Acoustic Album of All Time. His signature Seagull acoustic guitar has been voted among the ten best signature guitars by Guitar Player magazine. Don’t miss his performance in our acoustically stellar Great Hall. $25.
