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 12th album (Once A Day), Verch and her band - featuring bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters, and guitarist Alex Rubin - 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.
