When I saw the April Verch Band on Sunday in Harrisburg, I thought I would miss the upright bass when player Cody Walters put it to the side to pick up his banjo for a few songs. Clawhammer banjo is a style of playing, and Cody is perfecting this skill as he adds banjo to April’s fiddle and Hayes Griffin’s guitar. I didn’t miss the bass – the banjo adds a variety of tones and different rhythm to the band’s sound. The show is a perfect blend of music, dance and storytelling. If you’ve signed up, you’re in for a treat. If not – we’ll try to book them the next time they pass by.
