Bright Like Gold available today, on tour now.

"It's hard to believe she's so talented at such a wide range of fiddling...Believe it or not, she's really that good." - The Huffington Post

"In concert, Verch is a dynamic performer who incorporates step dancing into her show, and it always brings down the house." - CMT Edge

ABOUT April Verch: Throw down the plywood and let April and her boys do the rest. Canada’s Ottawa Valley meets Old-Time Appalachia: crack fiddling, electric step dancing, sweet singing.


April Verch has never sounded more comfortable in her skin than she does now, in the second decade of her career as an internationally touring Canadian fiddler, step dancer and singer-songwriter. Her ninth album, Bright Like Gold, captures a woman who’s fleshed out her identity and is in full command of her gifts, a woman who’s grown from a prodigy into an enduring artist with grace and grit to spare. The April Verch Band—rounded out by bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, is an energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating outfit.
