“Nobody embodied that sound (Doc Watson) like fiddler April Verch.  When Verch launched into a step dance once performed by lumberjacks, the crowd swooned.”-Rolling Stone

“To witness a performance by April Verch is to participate in a multi-sensory experience.  Some of the many hats she wears include fiddler, singer and stepdancer, all of which she combines into a single performance.”-Heartstrings


April Verch blends the traditions of North American roots music and exuberant step-dancing with her own artistic voice and vision in a feisty high-energy show that puts her award-winning fiddling and songwriting talents out front. Touring the world to share songs from her milestone 10th album, Verch and her band combine her delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing, a trifecta of talents she brings together simultaneously to jaw-dropping effect. Her timeless repertoire – a mix of country, folk, Irish-Canadian, and bluegrass – never fails to grab an audience’s heart. She is a virtuosic but “down home” performer, and one who brings the old-fashioned virtues of her native Ottawa Valley upbringing onto every stage she graces.
