PEPPINO D'AGOSTINO IN CONCERT
Peppino D’Agostino doesn’t just play the guitar. He composes, arranges, collaborates, improvises and has even been known to sing a song here and there in both English and Italian. But what he does create on the guitar makes the difference between simply playing and truly making music apparent in the most wonderful ways. D’Agostino has been hailed as “a guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar magazine as well as “a giant of the acoustic guitar” (San Diego Reader), and holds many top guitar awards, but the San Francisco Chronicle encapsulated the essential difference that distinguishes D’Agostino’s music when it dubbed him “a poet.” Where: The USU Performance Hall. Website: http://arts.usu.edu/ When: Saturday, November 12th at 7:30pm. Cost: $17 in advance $20 at the door, $9 youth tickets available at the door for children 8-12.
