Susquehanna Folk Music Society Presents: Joe Newberry & April Verch
Joe Newberry & April Verch
A night of lively American, Canadian, and Celtic Fiddle Music and Songs!
Joe Newberry and April Verch grew up around people who made their own fun with music and dance, and it shows. With original songs and timeless classics, heartwarming stories and lively tunes and dance, their shows radiate joy and good fellowship.
Joe Newberry comes from a family of singers and dancers in the Missouri Ozarks. He took up the guitar and banjo as a boy and learned fiddle tunes from great Missouri fiddlers.
April Verch grew up listening to her dad’s country band play for dances in the Ottawa Valley of Canada. She started step dancing at age three and fiddling at age six.
Although they are on the road much of the year, the two musicians are fond of saying that they are rarely homesick, because their music means they always have a bit of home with them wherever they go.
In a Newberry & Verch show, delighted audiences see first-hand the roots of their music, their love of performing, and their strong musical connection. These two never forget the roots of their music, that connection to the people in the audience, on the dance floor, to the community sparked by a good song.
This evening is SFMS Executive Director Jess Hayden’s final concert with the Susquehanna Folk Music Society before her retirement at the end of December. Come and wish her well!
