Share this event:




April Verch, doesn't just perform music, she exudes it. The internationally renowned  Canadian fiddler, singer, songwriter and stepdancer has a passion for performing and her goal is to touch the lives of those who are listening and watching.  She  was an International Bluegrass Music Association showcase artist in 2011, but before that, she was a Canadian Fiddle Champion in 1997 and 1998.    She and her band will be performing at USAO Sept. 9, at 7:30pm in the Te Ata Memorial Aud., /Chickasha, Oklahoma.
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.
The April Verch Bandrounded out by bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, who has a Masters in jazz improv from the New England Conservatoryis an energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating outfit, not to mention one that's not soon forgotten when they depart the stage. It doesn't hurt that the thrilling grand finale involves
Verch fiddling and step dancingand often executing two entirely different intricate rhythmic
patternsat once.
Something else that's downright impressive is the range of material Verch, Walters and Griffin inhabit on the new album. She's so fluent in folk traditionsthe Canadian ones she was born into and the American ones she later found her way tothat old fiddle tunes like those
featured in the Canadian medley "Dusty Miller," "Fiddle Fingers" and "Grizzly Bear" and the
Appalachian medley "Edward in the Treetop," "Yellow Jacket" and "Quit That Tickling Me"
sound positively reinvigorated. Originals like her instrumental waltz "Morris & Boris" and
country courting number "The Only One" are clearly made to last.
.
It's a wonder to behold Verch pulling off those pristine double-time triplets with her feet, and
the myriad other ways she's made good on the promise she showed at a tender age by
becoming an artist in touch with roots and in her element.
She won't be the one to mention her championship titles to you, or even the fact that she represented Canada's fiddling tradition by performing in the Opening Ceremonies at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

And rightfully so. Verch has perfected the art of winning fans for life.  This event is sponsored, in part, by The First National Bank of Chickasha.  Tickets are  $15, $12 senior citizens, and $7 for USAO students and personnel.  Call 274-5476 http://www.youtube.com/user/AprilVerch
