Canadian April Verch and band have established a reputation as consummate performers, winning over audiences with their bluegrass/old time music, incredible musicianship, charm, humour and seemingly boundless energy.

World-champion fiddler, step dancer and singer/songwriter April Verch and her band – bassist and claw hammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, regularly tour internationally. Known for her step dancing while fiddling, April performs perfect double-time triplets with her feet!

‘It’s hard to believe she’s so talented at such a wide range of fiddling. I’ve seen her do it live, though. Believe it or not, she’s really that good.’ The Huffington Post

‘Verch is a dynamic performer who incorporates step dancing into her show, and it always brings down the house.’ CMT Edge
