Veronica and Max

Good time music comes to Stowey

Veronica Sbergia & Max De Bernardi play country blues and ragtime, hokum, jug band and rural music from the 1920’s and 1930’s. They like to keep this precious musical heritage alive faithfully reproducing its original sound whilst playing it a modern twist.

Using acoustic instruments such ukulele, washboard, kazoo, steel guitar and double bass their passion for this music is perfectly represented on their last CD OLD STORIES FOR MODERN TIMES, that also sees contributions by other leading musicians and friends, Sugar Blue (a legendary harmonica player who has played in the past with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Willie Dixon and Frank Zappa).

The album is an overview of the American popular music from the early years of the last century with the Red Wine Serenaders reinterpreting great songs by artists like Big Bill Broonzy, Memphis Minnie, Jimmy Rodgers, Sidney Bechet, Lucille Bogan, Bo Carter, Delmore Brothers, all done in their own unique style.

With their trio called “Veronica & The Red Wine Serenaders” they won the European Blues Challenge 2013, an important international contest held in Toulouse. Following this success they performed at the prestigious Notodden Blues Festival in Norway and Lucerne Blues Festival. Veronica is also the first Italian artist ever invited to the Mustique Blues Festival, in the Caribbean.

Veronica & Max regularly perform in USA, France, Switzerland, Hungary, Norway, Spain, the UK, Italy and Poland. In Britain they have played everywhere, from the Shetland Folk Festival to the River Dart Music Festival.

Bringing old stories to modern times, their concerts are a musical journey through the plantations of Southern USA, the brothels of New Orleans, Prohibition, the barrelhouses and cottonfields of the Mississippi Delta, the prisons of Louisiana and on to the urban blues of the Great Depression of 1929. This is “blues music that will put a smile on your face”.
