The first concert in the New Spire Arts 2021-2022 Concert Series is the virtuosic fiddle, dance, and banjo duo April Verch & Cody Walters!To listen to April Verch & Cody Walters is to be immersed in tradition. To watch them perform is to be transported. Be it regional Canadian roots, American old-time, 50’s Country, Scandinavian folk music, or something original that sounds as though it has been around for a century- the one common thread is their love and reverence for the music and traditions that have been passed down to them.

Husband and wife duo are a true partnership of kindred musical spirits, each a world class musician in their own right. Verch and Walters began playing together in 2007 when Walters joined the April Verch Band as their bassist. Initially formed as a pickup band centered around Verch’s own fiddle and dance stylings in 2000, the band grew and blossomed into an established trio of world-class musicians, spanning several musical traditions and backgrounds. In 2018- fittingly amidst their ever-busy tour schedule- April and Cody were married.

The duo’s diverse repertoire and unbridled passion come to life on stage with a presence that is versatile, robust, and masterfully executed. Verch’s delicate voice, energetic footwork, sand paper foot percussion, and stunning playing (sometimes combined all at once!) are jaw-dropping. Walters’ melodic banjo stylings, solid rhythm guitar accompaniment, and tasteful vocal harmonies are at once understated and brilliant, duetting with Verch’s skills in glorious harmony.
