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!
We are thrilled to be returning to Australia this Easter to visit all of our friends at The National Folk Festival!
Exclusive listen! Want to hear a track from my upcoming release? I happen to be “woman enough” to have scored a track premiere on PopMatters!
We’re headed to VA, MD, QC & NY this month! All repeat venues – which is really cool – because we love them all and it’s nice to feel loved and welcomed back! Click through if you want to see our video post about this tour…

I had a wonderful holiday season with treasured family time, and now I’m excited for 2019 and the adventures that await! Including…
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!
In June 2018 we were honoured to work with the fabulous team for “David Holt’s State of Music” to film an episode for Season 3 of the series which is now launched! Click for more on how & when to view!
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 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!
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!
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!
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 13, FatPigeonLive will be live streaming our concert at Greystones in Sheffield for free on YouTube. The fun kicks off at 3 PM Eastern, and is a great way for our non-UK fans to catch a bit of our current tour!
Joe and I are thrilled to be touring the UK as a duo for the first time!
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!
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!
Thanks to Steven Brodsky for making me think and reflect with these great questions for Delco Culture Vultures!
I’m so proud to play a fiddle made by Kate Rickenbacker! She’s a fantastic luthier and here’s a great new article where you can learn more about her if you like :)
