April Verch and Joe Newberry grew up steeped in traditional roots music. Their duo is the best of both their worlds colliding. Listen for stories of how they've discovered tunes, written others and arranged songs for the duo.

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
