Making a welcome return to the UK this week are Joe Newberry and April Verch, who will be performing as a duo in the UK for the first time. These two stellar musicians have been collaborating on this project for a couple of years and their album Going Home was released last year. Combining Joe’s gorgeous singing and songs, lively banjo and guitar picking with April’s jaw-dropping fiddle playing and step dancing, Newberry and Verch will have your foot tapping and the next minute will move you to tears. Don’t miss this outstanding USA/Canada duo! They’re in the country for just one week, and as well as booking the whole tour, we’re delighted to be hosting their concert at Sheffield Greystones this Friday, 13th April. Read more about the Newberry & Verch tour here. Our good friends The Outlaw Sisters will be opening the show with their old time country songs and gorgeous three part harmonies. This one is going to be an absolute corker!
Advance tickets £12.50. Tickets can be purchased online (link below, note 10% booking fee) and there is also a small number of tickets available at the Greystones bar (daily 12pm-6pm)
We’re also very excited that Joe and April have been invited to record a session on BBC Radio 3’s new folk and world music programme Music Planet this week. They will be recording on Thursday prior to their London concert at Cecil Sharp House and the show will be broadcast at 11pm on Friday night – you can listen straight after the Sheffield gig!
