Let his signature flatpick style guide you through an original and exciting repertoire of new standards for acoustic guitar
The Vicenza, Italy-based artist learned classical piano as a child, but later embraced the guitar thanks to the meeting with flatpicking guitar guru Beppe Gambetta
Dalla Vecchia maintains a busy solo performance schedule at various venues throughout Europe. He toured nationally and internationally, performing at the Guitar Summit (bucks County, USA) European World of Bluegrass (Barneveld, The Netherlands), SBMA Winter Bluegrass Festival (Brugg, Switzerland) Goldegger Blues & Folk Tage (Austria, Goldegg), Bluegrass Festival Hoofddorp (Hoofddorp, The Netherlands), International Guitar Festival (Sarzana, Italy), Soave Guitar Festival (Verona, Italy) among others
In addition to performing at concerts, festivals, community events, Dalla Vecchia runs his own Acoustic Guitar Workshop in Italy each year and teaches guitar workshops in Europe
Dalla Vecchia makes his own mark with Open Spaces, an ambitious, richly textured collection of compositions, some solo, others with a band. His second solo CD, Sit Back, has been released in 2002. Fingerpicking.net Records released his new CD Grateful in 2006. It contains a number of Roberto original tunes increased by Gambetta’s innovative soundscapes. The album features Dalla Vecchia's powerful acoustic guitar, and showcases some of his finest guitar work to date
His guitar work is also featured on various compilation CDs, Flatpicking 2003 (FGM 113), European World of Bluegrass 1999 – 2001 – 2002 - 2007 (SCR Productions), Country In This Country (MAP Records), among others. Now plans are in the works for further recordings
Dalla Vecchia’s playing stands out as melodically inspired and meaningfully focused. His flair for the melody is also strongly evident in his compositions, many of which are singable and memorable.
"...another monster talent from Italy... (he) has a mastery over tone and
a grasp for sound quality that is positively awesome
Flatpicking Guitar Magazin
“... Roberto is a brilliant young player of acoustic musi
with emotions in his playing far exceeding his time on earth.
"…it’s no surprise that his tunes are musical and melodic and his playing nearly flawless
