Peppino D'Agostino
Peppino D'Agostino emerged on the acoustic guitar scene in the early 80’s as a leading member of the second wave of the great fingerstylists that helped redefine the instrument. His remarkable technique, penchant for open tunings, and percussive effects are the basis of his unique compositional style which has been inspiring musicians and audiences alike for decades. Add to that his natural warmth, playfulness, and broad musical tastes and you have the recipe for what he calls “minestrone music”. 

D'Agostino has performed in more than 30 countries, at prestigious international festivals and at 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, not to mention the friends above. Recognized as "the guitarist’s guitarist" by Acoustic Guitar magazine and described as "a giant of the acoustic guitar" by the San Diego Reader, D'Agostino was voted Best Acoustic Guitarist by readers of Guitar Player magazine.

“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... (he) gets the resin and the wood” – Leo Kottke.
