The holiday concert features Laurelyn Dossett, April Verch, Joe Newberry and Mike Compton. With inspiring vocal harmonies and virtuoso instrumentals, The Gathering breathes new life into traditional Christmas music and introduces fresh new songs of the season. "It's what the holidays were before shopping and Irving Berlin." Wall Street Journal About the band: Known around the world for his clawhammer banjo playing, Joe Newberry is also a powerful guitarist, singer and songwriter. A longtime and frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion, he sang with the 2016 Transatlantic Sessions, and at the Transatlantic Session's debut at Merlefest in 2017. The Gibson Brothers' version of his song "Singing As We Rise" won the 2012 IBMA "Gospel Recorded Performance" Award, and he shared the 2013 IBMA "Song of the Year" Award for "They Called It Music" with Eric Gibson. While April Verch is perhaps best known for playing fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American, classic country, Scandinavian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of traditional sounds. While her fiddle playing is of the "astounding" variety, it's her multiple artistic talents that allow her to come at her audiences from so many different directions and points of inspiration. Combine that instrumental prowess with soulful singing and stunning stepdancing, and the result is an artist who is basically a force of nature. Grammy and IBMA award-winning mandolinist, singer, and recording artist Mike Compton has earned "a worldwide reputation as one of the modern masters of bluegrass mandolin...one of the most recognizable and respected mandolin voices anywhere" (Mandolin Magazine). He toured with John Hartford, Nashville Bluegrass Band, and was featured in the soundtracks for, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "Cold Mountain". Wearing his signature pressed b
