Superdownhome @ Petershagen

Superdownhome was the last act on the first day of the 12. Bluesnacht in Petershagen DE on 2021-07-30.  Superdownhome are Beppe Facchetti (dr) and Enrico Sauda (voc, g) from Brescia in Italy. They came only for this one show to Germany. In 2016 they collaborated and formed a project linked to the traditions of rural blues, but also projected towards personal spaces contaminated by rock'n'roll, country, folk and punk. I saw them firstly as support for Popa Chubby at the Bluesgarage in Isernhagen DE in 2019 and was deeply impressed.
