Veronica Sbergia & Max De Bernardi

artist-2916-1 (1).jpg

Italians Max De Bernardi and Veronica Sbergia passionately play country blues, ragtime, hokum, jug band music and rural music from the 1920s and 1930s.
An irresistible blend of blues, ragtime, vaudeville and hillbilly music, played using strictly acoustic instruments such as ukulele, washboard, kazoo, double bass and guitars.


They love to entertain and keep this precious musical heritage alive, faithfully reproducing its original sound but playing it with a modern twist . With the Red Wine Serenaders they won the European Blues Challenge, held in Toulouse in 2013 and were selected in January 2015 as representatives for Italy, at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.


We had them booked for the doomed 2020 festival, and it's taken us a few years for their schedule to line up with our dates but we've managed at last!

They're playing Thursday's Blues Night on the Lake Stage along with Nine Below Zero and Martin Harley and his band.

When it comes to knowing about Americana these two are right up there! ... Max is a very accomplished guitarist and a strong vocalist; Veronica plays a mean washboard, ukulele and possesses a strong vocal styling

Mike Vernon 

"Veronica and Max were brilliant as ever. Max is one of the best guitarists we’ve ever seen and Veronica’s voice was just wonderful and really took the crowd along with her. They all loved them!
