Flatpick guitar meet in Milan

Roberto Dalla VecchiaRoberto Dalla Vecchia is organizing what he feels sure is the first ever meeting of Italian flatpickers, scheduled for September 22 in Milan. The site of this six string summit will be the Italian Music Fair MEET, which Roberto describes as being similar to the Musikmesse in Frankfort, though on a smaller scale.

Roberto invites any and all flatpickers, Italian or not, to attend this meeting/concert on Saturday September 22, which will be held in the Acoustic Guitar Village at MEET. He asks all flatpickers to bring their guitars and join in.

I decided to organize the first meeting of Italian flatpickers because we are not that many and people don’t know each other, so the main purpose of this is to connect with people. I will be playing some duets with a few flatpicker friends on stage and we will end up playing the classic fiddle tune Blackberry Blossom with all the participants.

If anyone who would like to join us is not familiar with the tune they are welcome to email me, and I will send along the TAB. Of course I would like everybody to join us from any country, so if some flatpickers are on vacation here in Italy during that period of time they are very much welcome to come and meet us!

For more details about Roberto’s flatpick summit in Milan, he recommends that you contact him by email.
