Anchise Bolchi, one of the most sought-after country music artists in Italy and one of the most experienced in that genre, got his first guitar at the age of 9. Yet, mastering the guitar wasn't enough of a challenge for the young man. He also mastered fiddle, dobro, pedal steel guitar as well as piano. Today, the fiddle is his main instrument, and he tours Italy thrilling crowds with his fast, smokin' fiddle playing American popular music (the genre he loves) with a 90's country-oriented style.
It wasn’t long before the music business started to take note of this highly talented musician able to play most of any string instrument with a dexterity rarely seen before. Soon he began to receive offers to add his picking to studio albums of popular Italian stars
He worked with the famous Italian rocker Ligabue playing steel guitar, banjo and dobro. Other cooperations included playing steel, dobro and fiddle for Italian pop stars Ornella Vanoni, Fausto Leali and singer/songwriter Mario Lavezzi. He appeared in concert with Guy Clark in 1992 in Turin and Steve Young in 1996 in Milano. In 2000, during a tour in the U.S., he attended The Fiddle Contest in Colorado and ranked second. Nashville singer/songwriter Michael Peterson chose him and his NEXT STOP BAND in 2009 as his European backing band. In 2015, he again shared the stage with Ligabue in an epic Campovolo performance at Reggio Emilia, Italy.
