About David
David DiGiuseppe is a multi–faceted performer who has been playing professionally since 1978. Appearing as a soloist and with numerous groups, DiGiuseppe is an accomplished instrumentalist, singer and storyteller.

A nationally recognized accordionist, DiGiuseppe is known for his fiery and emotive playing, and is equally at home performing Irish tunes in a pub, French musettes in a cabaret, contra or Cajun music for a dance, or in the intimate setting of a concert hall.

DiGiuseppe plays for contra dances throughout the US with his bands FootLoose and Contrazz. He presents concerts of songs and instrumental pieces with his new ensemble Craicdown.

As a singer and storyteller, DiGiuseppe presents fun and informative family and educational concerts for schools, museums, libraries, etc. In addition to accordion, he plays mandolin, banjo, Irish cittern, Appalachian dulcimer, guitar and concertina.

DiGiuseppe has released three recordings showcasing his playing on music from Celtic, Parisian and American traditions. Reviewer John O’Regan of Ireland wrote, “…a player of immense talent and vision, David is a musician worth encountering.”

DiGiuseppe is also featured on four releases with his band FootLoose, a new CD with Contrazz, a new CD release by Craicdown, and appears on numerous CDs backing other musicians.

The Mighty Accordion--The Complete Guide to Mastering Left Hand Bass/Chord Patterns by DiGiuseppe has recently been published by Mel Bay Publications.
