benefit Acoustic guitarist Peppino D'AgostinoI’m excited for the benefit concert taking place tonight for the non-profit organization Lifetime Adoption Foundation! This non-profit foundation assists women and children in crisis situations. It provides scholarship opportunities to birth mothers who have lovingly created an adoption plan for their baby or child. The Foundation also makes adoption grants available to hopeful adoptive couples.
Tonight’s benefit concert will feature world-renowned acoustic guitarist Peppino D’Agostino. He was named ‘Best Acoustic Guitarist’ by Guitar Player Magazine. He’s been called “[a] phenom in the same league with John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Doc Watson and John Renbourn” (Jazziz.) And the Chicago Tribune says “…D’Agostino plays steel-string guitar with virtuosity and complexity…Influences are as farflung 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.” D’Agostino will perform live tonight, October 20, 2017, at my event venue in Grass Valley, California, the Foothills Event Center! It’s not too late to buy a ticket online at, or at the door.
