Veronica Sbergia and Max De Bernardi passionately play country blues and ragtime, hokum, jug band and rural music from the 1920s and 1930s. They like to keep this precious musical heritage alive, faithfully reproducing its original sound whilst giving it a modern twist.
Using strictly acoustic instruments such as ukulele, washboard, kazoo, resophonic guitars and double bass, their passion for this music is perfectly represented on their last CD, Old Stories for Modern Times.
With their trio, called Veronica and The Red Wine Serenaders, they won the European Blues Challenge 2013, an important international contest held in Toulouse in March. Veronica and Max regularly perform in the USA, France, Switzerland, Hungary, Norway, Spain, England, Italy and Poland.
