JUNO Award nominated Canadian ﬁddler, singer, songwriter and stepdancer April Verch doesn’t just perform music, she exudes it. She’s been called a "world class fiddler" by New Grass Revival founder Sam Bush, and "one of the most versatile artists of traditional music’s new breed" by The News & Observer's Jack Bernhardt. Her music has been described as Old-Time with a side of Canada's Ottawa Valley: plucky, straight-backed Canadian tunes ﬁt so snugly beside ancient Appalachian airs that you’d think they’d been neighbors for centuries. April performed in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games opening ceremony, and was the ﬁrst woman in history to win both of Canada’s most prestigious ﬁddle championships, the Grand Masters and Canadian Open. Her latest album, That's How We Run, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music award.
