If a chance to see the beautiful and talented April Verch – Canadian fiddler, singer, songwriter and step dancer – is not enough, don’t forget she’s bringing along Cody Walters.
Cody is a master at the upright bass and also plays the claw hammer banjo. Cody has traveled with various bands playing everything from bluegrass to oldtime, jazz to latin. And if Cody & April aren’t enough…what about Hayes Griffin?
Hayes was an active member of Boston’s vibrant acoustic music scene as he added a master’s degree in Contemporary Improvisation from the New England Conservatory to his BA in Music Performance from Denison University. Hayes started playing guitar at age 9 and gained recognition in the bluegrass world as a teenager, winning 2 flatpicking competitions in a row. Hayes has been with the April Verch Band since 2012.
All 3 of these influential musicians make up the internationally renowned April Verch Band and will be performing Tuesday evening, January 15, 2013 – 7:00 pm. Check the ‘about’ page for instructions on how to sign up for a seat at the show.
