Joe Newberry and April Verch
Joe Newberry and April Verch will perform at Old Sloop Presents Saturday, October 28 at 7:30pm. The performance will be in the handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.
Growing up, Joe and April absorbed traditions of home and hearth - he in the Missouri Ozarks and she in the Ottawa Valley of Canada. Although they are on the road much of the year, the two musicians say 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. 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.
