Adventurous guitarist Peppino D'Agostino has released eight acclaimed albums and a DVD in the US and two CDs in Europe. D'Agostino has been praised by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a poet...among the best talents around", lauded by Acoustic Guitar as "one of the most capable composers among
fingerstyle guitarists," applauded by the San Diego Times as " potentially a giant of the acoustic guitar," and touted by Jazziz as a "phenom in the
same league with John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Doc Watson and John Renbourn."

His touring schedule has sent him from Carnegie Hall to Wolftrap, says Fairfield Studios' Dana McCommon, and to places such as the Vancouver Festival, where he's shared the stage
with such noted guitarists as Leo Kottke, Doc Watson, Chet Atkins, David Grisman, John Lee Hooker, and Egberto Gismonti.

This concert's production cost has been unwritten by John E. Settle, Jr. Attorney at Law, says McCommon. Still, the tariff for music and supper is $15.
