“A world class fiddler.” – Sam Bush
“Verch is a dynamic performer who incorporates step dancing into her show, and it always brings down the house.” – CMT Edge
April Verch steps, sings, and fiddles with a fresh and feisty approach to deep North American traditions. Touring the world to share songs from her milestone 10th album (The Newpart), Verch and her band - featuring bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist and mandolinist Hayes Griffin - keep the community-fired celebratory side of their traditional music at the forefront, honing a keen awareness of how to engage contemporary listeners. At the heart lie Verch’s delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing, a trifecta of talents she brings together simultaneously to jaw-dropping effect. Even as she plays with the tradition she inherited in her native Ottawa Valley, Verch’s energetic and breathtaking performances speak to the heart of roots music with mature and reflective songwriting, interpreting, and storytelling.
