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!)

On April 7th I turn another year older, and this year, instead of one party, I’m throwing a whole bunch of them – in the Midwest!

April in March! OH, NY, CT, RI, MA!

Our February tours took us to the windy plains of Manitoba and the snowy mountains in the Yukon. Both tours were full of spectacular music & breathtaking views, but they were also very cold. Maybe that’s why we can’t stop talking about spring!
