On 17 October Red Wine received the 39th Regione Liguria Award for Music 2008, promoted by the Colombo Foundation.
The Award, created by Don Bruno Venturelli, sponsored by Regione Liguria and Carige Bank, has become the event that every year recognises individuals, groups, or organizations from Liguria who distinguished themselves in the culture, music, entertainment, and business professions.
During the short set following the ceremony at Teatro della Gioventù, Red Wine was joined by special guest and friend Michael Guggino, mandolin player for the great NC-based band Steep Canyon Rangers, who was travelling through Italy on vacation with his wife and a couple of friends.
On that same stage Red Wine will host its first 'Bluegrass Party' on 13-14 February 2009, with special guest Tim O'Brien.
More photos from the award evening, taken by Stefano Goldberg, can be seen on the Red Wine website.
