April Verch is a Canadian-born fiddler and step-dancer best known for playing songs that reflect the Ottawa-style fiddle music that’s close to her home and heart. Verch doesn’t limit herself to traditional styles though, as can be heard on her latest release, Bright Like Gold. The album reflects robust musical ability that’s set in traditional Canadian fiddle, yet it also takes a graceful step toward incorporating hints of Appalachian and bluegrass style. The unifying theme of Verch’s music? It’s meant to make you dance!
