Bow. Feet. Voice. A trio of talents, keeping the tradition feisty.

While April Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch tours with world-class musicians as a trio, featuring acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass and clawhammer banjo in addition to Verch’s vocals, fiddle and foot percussion.

She step-dances while fiddling. She sings while step-dancing. Sometimes she sings, steps and fiddles all at once, with apparent ease and precision. Verch is - as they say - a triple threat in performance, her live show a beautiful companion to her music: versatile, robust, and masterfully executed.

‘Her playing is quite breathtaking...as good as it gets’ fRoots

This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
