David DiGiuseppe has been performing professionally since 1978. He 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.
In addition to playing with FootLoose, David performs with Contrazz, Craicdown, and numerous other bands. As a singer and storyteller, DiGiuseppe presents solo concerts to schools and family audiences. Previously, DiGiuseppe has toured and recorded with acclaimed Cajun singer and songwriter J.J. Reneaux, the Big Zucchini Washboard Bandits and many others.
DiGiuseppe has released three recordings showcasing his playing of music from the 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 appears on numerous other CDs with his various bands or backing other musicians.
David has written four books for accordion published by Mel Bay Publications— a tutorial on left hand technique, a guide to learning blues accordion, and two extensive collections of traditional tunes arranged for accordion.
