April Verch and Cody Walters at the Shady Grove Coffeehouse
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 11th album (The April Verch Anthology), Verch and bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters, 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 Verchs 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, Verchs energetic and breathtaking performances speak to the heart of roots music with mature and reflective songwriting, interpreting, and storytelling.
April sings while stepdancing. 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. April and Cody wowed us time; don't miss them this time around!
