Andrea Verga on SoundBetter

I am a professional banjo player and producer, recognised as one of the "...fine young Banjo player with a melodic bent..." [Banjo Newsletter June 2020]

I have toured with my main band "Folkamiseria", a band that proudly oscillates between Funky and Fiddle Tunes, playing in some of the best Celtic and Folk festivals all around Italy and Europe.
I also have solo albums and various singles published that count a considerable number of streams on the main platforms.
I have also performed on stage or in the studio with some various Folk artist here in Italy, including Davide Van De Sfroos, whom I played in "San Siro Stadium" in front of 20k people in June 2017.

I'm a banjo teacher, offering private lesson or teaching in some schools in Northen Italy, one of them is "Albero Musicale", a renowned schools that offer traditional music courses.
I have taught one to one banjo lessons since 2014, both in person and online.

I'm also a producer, and I have collaborated with some great artist in the Italian "Pop" scene, as a multi-instrumentalist and actively contributing to the production of their songs.

    Andrea was great! Came up with a cool, intuitive banjo part that also served the song well. Good clear recording and was happy to do a revision when I requested. Hope to work with again.

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with Andrea! He is an incredibly gifted and talented musician worthy of estimable respect and admiration. His work ethic is second to none! The quality approach in his communication, coupled with his professionalism was swift and effortless throughout. He is a world-class (banjo) player; can't recommend him enough! I will undoubtedly be returning to him for more of his amazing talent and musicianship. Thank you, Andrea! ๐Ÿ™

    I can't say enough about Andrea, quick, professional and always kills it! I have come to him with two projects now, with many more coming in the future. His magic makes the track come to life. Can't thank you enough Andrea. Ciao!

    Andrea was an absolute pleasure to work with. Delivered an amazing performance on the track. More work coming his way from me in the future. I will be recommending him to all my industry contacts to add to a very small list of great players. He is now my go to guy for all things banjo/mandolin. Thanks again Andrea!
