Newberry & Verch

$10.00 – $25.00

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture Performance Series presents

Newberry and Verch

Join us at the Miners Hall November 10th to fall in love with a folk duo (complete with step dancing!) who will make you laugh and shimmy in your seat!

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.

Joe Newberry comes from a family of singers and dancers. He took up the guitar and banjo as a boy and learned fiddle tunes from great Missouri fiddlers. 

April Verch grew up listening to her Dad’s country band play for dances in the Ottawa Valley. She started step dancing at age three and fiddling at age six. 

 Together they present an intricate musical palette, with Joe’s richly deep vocals, April Verch’s sweet soprano voice, original songwriting and outstanding instrumental banjo, fiddle, guitar and dance-percussion accenting each other’s virtuosity.

All 2024/25 Performance Series Shows:
88 Strings- Saturday, October 19th, 2024
88 Strings is a Canadian quartet that mixes traditional Chinese, Persian and Western plucked instruments, presenting new musical inventions and adventures written or arranged specifically for the group. Described by an audience member as “plucked string heaven,” 88 Strings’ unique sound blends classical and world music together into enveloping and often hypnotic music. The ensemble was formed as an initiative of the Vancouver Intercultural Orchestra (VICO) in 2020.

Royce Rich Accompanied by Joseph Stacy- Saturday, December 14th, 2024
Listed as one of CBC Music’s “Top 30 Under 30 Hot Musicians,” Royce Rich is establishing himself as one of Canada’s up-and-coming concert artists. Rich says “the program that the community of Trail and the supporters of the Rossland Arts Council can expect is a classical recital program that will encompass excitement, thrill and sheer virtuosity featuring show pieces and encore pieces that reflect what the violin is fully capable of demonstrating at the highest level.” Rich and Stacy will combine forces to bring us an unforgettable night of classical mastery. 

The Pairs- Sunday, March 23rd, 2025
Powered by soaring sister harmonies, this quirky trio’s unbottled chemistry quickly connects them to their audience. Renée Coughlin, Noelle Frances Coughlin, and Hillary Watson are the three distinct lead singers/songwriters of The Pairs. Together they offer a unique blend of music with stories of life’s hope, hilarity, and hardship. These classically trained vocalists blur the line between the stage and the crowd as if we’ve pulled up a seat around their family’s lively kitchen table. 

Raine Hamilton String Trio w/ ASL Interpreter- Saturday, April 12th, 2025
A classical violinist and musicologist by training, Raine and their string trio offer string-quartet-like arrangements of Raine’s original songs. They call this chamber-folk, a hybrid of the classical tradition of string quartet chamber music, with the singer songwriter folk that comes so naturally to Raine. Prism-clear vocals + strings, reaching out beyond the earthly.
