Live Music with Verdant Southside Junction Tap House
Inspired song writing and impassioned delivery have made Verdeant a refreshing surprise to audiences, performing a blend of folk, modern and original music. The brother/sister duo have performed all across their home state of WV and around Appalachia for the past seven years, playing venues such as The State Fair of West Virginia, Draper Mercantile, and The Empty Glass. And while their shows always include inventive takes on classics and popular favorites, it is inevitably their original songs that please the crowds most.
