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, Scandinavian folk music 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.Combining their unique backgrounds from Verch’s native Ottawa Valley and Walter’s 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-bajo duets with tight-knit vocal harmonies. These two will help audiences spring into the summer season at the Opera House. Advance discounted tickets, $25, available directly from the box office at 207-633-5159. Regular tickets $30. Tickets available beginning February 2022.
