Joe Newberry And April Verch
The HopBarn, Southwell.
Born in Missouri Joe Newberry is a top notch banjoist, guitarist, singer and songwriter, a charismatic performer who charms audiences wherever he goes. April Verch is a world class fiddle player, step dancer and singer from Canada's Ottawa Valley, who started step dancing at age three and playing the fiddle at age six! April has countless awards, ten albums and sixteen years of touring around the world under her belt with her own trio the April Verch Band.
These two hugely talented musicians came together several years ago and now tour regularly across the world. The collaboration is a seamless blend of Canadian and Ozark/Appalachian styles, a masterful fusion of shared interests and musical tastes. Their voices blend in harmony, their instrumental playing is unsurpassed, and the addition of April's spectacular step dancing takes their live performances to another level!
"Their enthusiasm for the material springs from them, you just can't help but be swept along." Folk Radio UK
