About the artists
Mandolin and lead singer Martino Coppo has played and recorded with Tony
Trischka & Barbara Lamb, Gene Parsons, Carlo Aonzo, Freewheelin', Arizona,
Francesco Guccini, Roberto Dalla Vecchia, Vittorio De Scalzi, La Rosa Tatuata,
and performs frequently with Beppe Gambetta (one of Red Wine's founding
members along with Silvio), the Kathy Chiavola Band, and Paolo Bonfanti. He
also keeps a busy teaching shedule on bluegrass/folk mandolin, giving
workshops and private lessons.
Red Wine founding member Silvio Ferretti (banjo, guitar, dobro, harmony vocals)
also played with Freewheelin' for a few years. He's contributed to music mags in
Italy and the USA for about 25 years, and in the past 10 years has cultivated one
of his lifelong passions working as a luthier. He also works as a consultant for
Saga Musical Instruments, and plays with the Saga bluegrass band at the major
music trade shows around the world.
Harmony singer and bass player, Stefano Cavallo, has a long personal musical
history mostly with rock bands, including Reunion, with which he recorded a few
songs for a Beatles tribute CD in the historical Abbey Road studios. His love for
bluegrass, however, dates back to the early '80s, when he played with a band
called the Green Cellar Society, which included Martino, Red Wine's former bass
player Marco Curreri, and, for a brief time, Silvio as well.
Marco Ferretti, on guitar, has been in the band since Summer of 2008, when he
was literally thrown to the fireline on some of the most prestigious stages in the
international Bluegrass circuit. When not playing with Red Wine, Marco can be
seen wailing away on a red Stratocaster in the rock band The Stanfords, and it's
pretty obvious that his passion for Bluegrass guitar is almost equalled by the one
for the sounds and phrasings of Eric Clapton or Mark Knopfler.
