Beppe Gambetta is a multi-faceted acoustic guitarist well-versed in bluegrass, Italian classics and jazz... as well as his own stunning original music. From his unique background as an Italian musician and singer, in love with both American roots music and the music of his native country, Beppe has travelled the globe performing for (and charming) music enthusiasts of many cultures. He has produced  eleven CDs and several DVDs; conducts master classes, published instruction books, and collaborated with many of the world's master musicians. Beppe is even a published author -- a hardcover Italian cookbook (complete with musical suggestions and wines for each meal). He returns to Connecticut for an evening of music and friendship, as only Beppe can serve.

Jorma Kaukonen
- vocals, guitars

Barry Mitterhof - vocals, mandolin + more

* Barry, of course, is well known to New Englanders as a former member of Tony Trischka and Skyline for many years. As an accomplished music teacher to the stars, and a master of various stringed instruments, Barry can play everything from 1800's classical mandolin to Bill Monroe to Jimi Hendrix!

Jorma Kaukonen's career has spanned over a half-century. He is one of the most highly respected interpreters and teachers of American roots music, blues and Americana. Jorma has also been at the forefront of popular rock-and-roll. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy nominee, he is a founding member of two legendary bands: Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna. Jorma’s repertoire goes far beyond his involvement as a pioneer of the psychedelic rock era. He is a true music legend whom has beat all the odds against those who trek along that particular music path. His "Blue Country Heart" recording (with Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and Bela Fleck) is a classic.

Jorma and his wife Vanessa operate one of the world’s most unique centers for learning to play instruments. Their Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp sits on 125 acres of fields, woods, hills and streams in Southeastern Ohio. Since it opened in 1998, thousands of musicians have gathered for weekends of master instruction offered by Jorma and other accomplished instructors in their particular musical fields.

Jorma Kaukonen is always looking to take his musical horizons further still; always moving forward, and is quick to say:

"Teaching is among the most rewarding aspects of my career. You just can’t go backward. The arrow of time only goes in one direction.”

  Jay Ungar and Molly Mason are musicians of enormous talent who draw their repertoire and inspiration from a wide range of American musical styles: 19th-century classics, Appalachian, Cajun, and Celtic fiddle tunes and favorites from the 'Golden Age' of country and swing. Their own songs, fiddle tunes, and orchestral compositions are many. Least of all, Jay's now signature fiddle song, "Ashokan's Farewell" from the Civil War documentary soundtrack.

  In recent years, Jay and Molly have reached an ever widening audience through their appearances at the White House, plus A Prairie Home Companion, their own public radio specials, and film soundtracks such as Brother's Keeper, Legends of the Fall, and various Ken Burns' documentaries.
