Newberry and Verch in Concert
October 22 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$20 – $25
Superb traditional Canadian fiddling and stepdancing meets American Ozark and oldtimey roots.
Joe Newberry and April Verch are masters of their traditions. Tunes, ballads, step dancing, and original songs by way of Canada and the Ozarks ring like silver and shine like gold. With beautiful harmony singing, breathtaking instrumentals, and exquisite dancing, these two hit the stage in perfect rhythm, making audiences remember why this music existed in the first place.
Verch, best known for two decades of international touring with The April Verch Band, and Newberry, well-known for his work with The Transatlantic Sessions and A Prairie Home Companion.
Growing up, Joe Newberry and April Verch absorbed traditions of home and hearth – in his Missouri Ozarks and her Ottawa Valley of Canada. In a Newberry & Verch show, delighted audiences see first-hand the roots of their music, their love of performing, and their strong musical connection. Original songs join timeless classics. Stories warm the heart and give audiences a chance to understand where the music comes from. Lively fiddle and banjo numbers combine with traditional dance steps to illustrate happy times when people made their own fun.
