Newberry & Verch

Supreme exponents of traditional North American craft

April Verch and Joe Newberry are supreme exponents of their traditional North American musical crafts. April, from Canada’s Ottowa Valley, is a fine fiddler, singer and step-dancer who grew up listening to her dad’s country dance band. Joe grew up in Missouri playing the banjo and guitar and is also a fine fiddler himself. Their music is addictive – full of lustful energy gathered through the ages. These two, an ideal blend of youth and experience, inject vigour and artistry into their singing and playing. A real old-time treat.
