with Nokosee Fields
old-time and early bluegrass fanatics who love to play and spread their excitement about this music wherever they can. As often as possible, including this house concert, they are joined by the multi-talented Nokosee Fields on bass. Based in Minnesota, Steam Machine likes to highlight unique and beautiful midwestern repertoire alongside tunes and songs from Appalachia. Their music combines clean, powerful fiddling with driving three finger banjo, raw unprocessed vocals, and a rhythm section that keeps your tractor going. In 2017, at the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, WVA, after a 5-way tie for first place, they took 2nd place in the string band competition!

Joe Newberry & April Verch
Banjo. Guitar. Fiddle. Feet. Song. Tradition.
Joe Newberry and April Verch are masters of their traditions. Tunes, ballads, step dancing, and original songs by way of the Ottawa Valley in Canada and the Ozarks in Missouri ring like silver and shine like gold. With beautiful harmony singing, breathtaking instrumentals, and exquisite dancing, these two hit the stage in perfect rhythm, making audiences remember why this music existed in the first place. And “while they never lose sight of their own unique traditions, their work together also serves to craft an entirely new musical aesthetic, one with its own melting pot integrity.” (Barry Poss, founder of Sugar Hill Records)
