The Red Wine Bluegrass Party #4 with special guest legendary singer/songwriter Peter Rowan on 16 November in Genoa (Genova) was a great success!
The first part of the show saw Red Wine presenting its latest CD RED, with help from Daniele Bovo (cello), Ilaria Olcese (vocal), and Davide 'Zazza' Zalaffi (drums), who all appear on the recording.
'Grandpa Banana', another 'unofficial' guest at the Party.
The band came back in the end and walked with Peter in front of the microphones to sing the gospel 'Going up on the mountain', completely acoustic. Then they went through a ten-minute-long new and intriguing version of 'Land of the Navajo' as well as the classic 'Midnite Moonlite', with help from Grandpa Banana again.
On the encore ('Long journey home') world-famous classical mandolin master Carlo Aonzo made a surprise visit on stage, holding his bowl-back mandolin, for some twin mandolin solos.
Peter Rowan and Red Wine also played a few other well received gigs on this tour, in Turin (Torino), La Roche-sur-Foron in France, and Trezzo D'Adda, Milan (Milano).
