To listen to April Verch and 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, or something original that sounds as though it’s 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.
After more than two decades of touring and with 14 albums in her name (two of which were nominated for JUNO Awards, among other honors), there is nothing that gives Verch more joy than playing and sharing music with the world. Together, this husband and wife duo have traveled to four continents, performed in fourteen countries, and played everywhere from dusty festival workshops all the way to legendary stages such as the Kennedy Center and the Ryman Auditorium. Combining their unique backgrounds from Verch’s native Ottawa Valley and Walters’ heartland roots in Kansas, their music showcases endless creativity and versatility—transitioning effortlessly from traditional Ottawa Valley step dancing and fiddle tunes, to old-time fiddle-banjo duets with tight-knit vocal harmonies, to innovative sandpaper foot percussion, all contrasted against Verch’s sweet soprano voice.
Adult tickets are $10.00 at the door for both performances. All children and students are free to attend. Pro-Art season tickets will be honored. This performance is part of the W. Campbell Edmonds Concert Series.
