Stay tuned for the next B&B benefit party in Jerry Ferraz's backyard! Here's some video of the last one!
Thursday, August 6 – 7:30 pm
solo acoustic fingerstyle guitar
As an acoustic player, Valerio’s repertoire spans from the classics of blues fingerpicking and the golden era of Chet Atkins to contemporary artists such as the legendary Tommy Emmanuel, Franco Morone, Pierre Bensusan, and Daniele Bazzani incorporating sounds from the Irish tradition, American folk, jazz, ragtime, and world music. In his hour of fingerstyle at B&B he will touch popular tunes such as cannonball rag and deep river blues, play fresh compositions of contemporary steel-string composers, and won’t forget to pay a few tributes to rock and pop music. Please join us for an hour of fast-moving strings, rhythm, melodies, and entertainment!
Suggested cover charge:
$20 / sliding scale – $2 to $200
