CANCELLED! TOC presents Byrne & Kelly :: April Verch
This is not a statement we ever wished to release, but, as always, we feel it necessary to keep you all up to date with the current situation.
Neil received a phone call in the early hours of Friday morning from home informing him that the medical specialists treating his father in Dublin have advised Neil's close family to travel to his bedside as soon as they possibly can to be able to spend those last precious moments with him in his final days.
As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for Neil and his family but we moved fast to get Neil on a flight home to be with those closest to Eddie.
We regret that this means we've sadly had to cancel the remaining shows on this tour at the present time, however we do hope you can appreciate the need to be with family at this very difficult time. We will be in contact with all ticket holders in due course to facilitate refunds and hope to be able to reschedule as many shows as we can at a later date.
We thank you so much for your understanding at this sad time. Neil, the Byrne family, and all the "Byrne and Kelly" family appreciate all your prayers for Eddie and his family circle.
Please be advised that we will keep you informed of any further developments as they occur.
Thank you and God Bless.

Fiddler, singer, and stepdancer April Verch knows how relevant an old tune can be. She was raised surrounded by living, breathing roots musicher fathers country band rehearsing; the lively music at church and at community dances; the tunes she rocked out to win fiddle competitions. She thought every little girl learned to stepdance at the age of three and fiddle at the age of six. She knew nothing else and decided early on that she wanted to be a professional musician.
She took that leap, and for over two decades has been recording and captivating audiences worldwide, exploring new and nuanced places each step of the way. On February 17, 2017, she will release The April Verch Anthology (Slab Town Records), an 18-track collection celebrating her lifes work. Hand-picked by Verch, the songs on this compilation offer an enchanting mix of regional Canadian, American old-time, bluegrass, country and Americana tracks.
