Acclaimed guitarist Peppino D'Agostino returns to The Back Room.
"Peppino writes wonderful guitar pieces. He's one of my favorite composers for this cranky instrument. Plus, he's a tone player. I love his sound... gets the resin and the wood." - Leo Kottke
Peppino D’Agostino has performed in more than 34 countries, from prestigious international festivals to 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 have been released by influential labels, including Favored Nations, Mesa/Bluemoon, and Acoustic Music Records. He has been 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 the acoustic guitar of all time.
His CD, Every Step of The Way , was awarded a Bronze medal by Acoustic Guitar’s People’s Choice Awards 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.
Peppino released his latest album, CONNEXION, in 2020 to rave reviews:
"...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." - Chicago Tribune
“Peppino D’Agostino is a guitarist’s guitarist known as much for his technical skills as for his writing, (he is) one of the most capable composers among fingerstyle guitarists.” - Acoustic Guitar Magazine
