Happy Days!  My 12th full length recording, a tribute to classic country music from the 1950s and 60s is available now!  My heartfelt thanks to the entire team involved in making this release possible – especially my producer Doug Cox, recording engineer, Bil VornDick, and the incredible musicians who shared their talents and passion.

Extra! Extra! The Bluegrass Situation is premiering “Durham’s Bull,” one of two instrumentals on my upcoming (April 12) release.  I can’t wait for you to hear Al Perkins (pedal steel) & Red Volkaert (electric guitar) let loose on this one!

3rd Annual “Holiday Cheer” Tour

Can’t you hear those sleighs bells jinglin’ and banjos tuning? (Hey, it’s the season of hope, isn’t it?!) Newberry & Verch is loading up the sleigh for Holiday Cheer concerts in NC, GA, NY & ON from Dec 7-17!

AVB on NPR’s Ideastream

During our stop in Cleveland on our October tour, we had the pleasure of visiting NPR (WCPN) to record for Ideastream’s “Applause Performances”.  The entire chat & performance is archived HERE for you to enjoy at your leisure!  Huge thanks to the producers, staff & tech team for working with us!

Fall is in the air!

Fall is hiding in the trees, we can feel the cooler air creeping nearer and we are excited for the autumn tours and the new recording project that are approaching!

Summer Lovin’

It’s been a great first half to 2018 and we’ve got lots of fun stuff planned this summer from concerts to camps to festivals… Have a look at the tour dates page for more info. Stay tuned over the coming months for updates regarding our new record too!

West Coast in May

It’s been a little while since we’ve visited the best, I mean, west coast! And springtime seems like the perfect time to me! We’ll be returning to a few of our favourite venues and visiting a few new ones as well – on Vancouver Island, then in Washington & Oregon. Here’s to hoping we’ll meet you along the way!

Newberry & Verch in Austria

We’re LOVING Austria! If you haven’t already noticed, our social media feeds are full of photos & videos – it’s just too beautiful and special not to share (even though nothing can do it justice!)
