Holiday Cheer with Newberry & Verch @ Chenango Craftsman (Binghamton, NY) — 16 December 2018

“MUSIC OF THE SEASON, FROM OTTAWA TO THE OZARKS”

Growing up, musicians Joe Newberry & April Verch absorbed traditions of home and hearth–in his Missouri Ozarks and her Ottawa Valley of Canada. The holidays have always been a special time of year for both, with the lure of family and friends, festive decorations, gifts under the tree, and always…. music. So now, each year the duo sets out in a modern day sleigh (with four-wheel drive) to perform their eagerly anticipated holiday tour. Original songs join timeless hymns. Stories warm the heart and give a twinkle to the eye. Lively fiddle and banjo numbers combine with traditional dance steps to illustrate happy times when people made their own fun at the holidays, and all year long. Make your holiday concert list, and check it twice… Newberry & Verch are coming to town!
