Anchise Bolchi

Born in Mantua, he is one of the most renowned and requested country artists in Italy. He has a passion for American folk music, with a particular appreciation for modern country music. He picked up his first guitar at age nine and since then, he has taught himself to play many other instruments.
Today, his main instrument is the violin, but he is equally skilled at any type of string instrument.

He was soon noticed for his excellent “picking” techniques, to the point that LIGABUE wanted him in 1992 for an album, “Lambrusco, Coltelli e Popcorn”, and for a tour in which he played violin, steel guitar, dobro and banjo. Other studio collaborations would follow with ORNELLA VANONI for the album “Stella Nascente”, where he played the steel guitar and dobro, with FAUSTO LEALI for “Saranno Promossi” (steel guitar) and with MARIO LAVEZZI (dobro and steel guitar). In 2015, LIGABUE wanted him in his epic performance held at Campo Volo in Reggio Emilia.
