Red Wine is right at the top of all European Bluegrass bands. Formed in 1978, they have a style that encompasses traditional and contemporary Bluegrass, Country, Gospel, and Swing.
Since 1984, Red Wine has toured Europe, performing at major international festivals and playing concerts in Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Ireland, Wales, Holland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, and Austria gaining strong following everywhere. They have toured the United States regularly since 1995 and were featured several times at the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) convention in Raleigh, NC. The band’s last U.S. tour was in February 2020 when they performed at The Joe Val Festival in Massachusetts and Wintergrass Bluegrass Festival in Washington. Following the huge success of their 2008 30th anniversary celebration concert in Genova, Red Wine started a yearly adventure – The Red Wine Bluegrass Party – with international guests Tim O’Brien, Laurie Lewis & Tom Rozum, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Peter Rowan, and The Kruger Brothers and others. Recently the Party started featuring other genres like Celtic, Dixieland, and Old Time and welcomed collaborations with incredible artists from Italy and Europe.
