Newberry & Verch in concert at The Carlile Institute, Meltham

Joe Newberry and April Verch are master musicians, performing an entertaining blend of folk, bluegrass and old time Americana, with ballads, joyful fiddle tunes and poignant original and traditional songs.

Joe Newberry is an outstanding clawhammer banjo player, singer, guitarist and award-winning songwriter. He was a guest star on 2016’s Transatlantic Sessions live tour and he performs with various projects including his duo with mandolin legend Mike Compton. April Verch is a world class fiddle player, step dancer and singer from Canada’s Ottawa Valley. April has countless awards, ten albums and twenty years of worldwide touring under her belt with her trio the April Verch Band. Joe and April's voices blend in harmony, their instrumental playing is unsurpassed, and the addition of April’s spectacular step dancing takes their performance to another level!

Award winning local music promoter True North Music has booked Joe and April's whole UK tour - they're so fantastic that we wanted to bring them to Meltham too! We look forward to presenting this fine duo at The Carlile Institute for what’s sure to be another sensational evening of live music. As usual there will be a licensed bar, run by the community association.
