    Sam Pacetti has long been referred to as “The Chosen One” by local Saint Augustinians here in Florida and musicians worldwide. His mastery of classical and fingerstyle guitar, flamenco, and jazz makes one wonder how such sound can be accomplished on a single guitar. A Saint Augustine native, Sam was mentored by the late great Gamble Rogers, a hometown troubadour hero and father of the Florida folk music revival. Sam’s knack for writing songs that invoke both existential thought and nostalgia without waxing gushy sentiment has made Sam a top tier songwriter in the Florida music scene. Sam’s on-stage presence is one filled with wit, dry humor, and complete transcendence into the observation of sound.
