Newberry and Verch 
"The Newberry-Verch collaboration, a seamless blend of Canadian and Ozark/Appalachian styles, is a masterful fusion of shared interests and musical tastes."
Raleigh News & Observer 
"... a simply gorgeous and intimate expression of musical multiculturalism … while they never lose sight of their own unique traditions, their work together also serves to craft an entirely new musical aesthetic."
Barry Poss, founder of Sugar Hill Records
Joe Newberry and April Verch showcase tunes, ballads, step dancing, and original songs by way of the Ozarks and Canada’s Ottawa Valley, respectively. With beautiful harmony singing, breathtaking instrumentals, and exquisite dancing, these two singular musicians hit the stage in perfect rhythm, making audiences remember why this music existed in the first place.
Verch (fiddle, vocals, step dance) is best known for two decades of international touring with The April Verch Band and a 2020 JUNO Award Nominee. Newberry (guitar, banjo, vocals) is an award-winning songwriter known for his work with mandolin icon Mike Compton, as well as The Transatlantic Sessions and A Prairie Home Companion.
This collaboration holds a special place in their hearts, so they have carved out time in their schedules for regular tours together, resulting in appearances in North America and Europe, a special Christmas program, and two albums together. 
Whether it is the power of two voices lifted in harmony or the sound of traditional tunes calling people to get up and move, these two masters of tradition put on an unforgettable show.
