He's an almost unnaturally gifted flatpicker and fingerstylist, and he's personable to a fault - a charmer who has even the most reticent audience in the palm of his hand in short order. If those qualities aren't impressive enough, he's a terrific cook who recently had his first cookbook published. Gambetta has been the reigning acoustic guitar star in Europe for a long time, but his bi-annual trips to the States are making him equally well-known among acoustic aficionados in this country.
Pulse! magazine called him an "acoustic-guitar- flatpicking monster" who possesses "superhuman grace on the instrument."
