Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

April Verch

When: Sun., Feb. 16, 7 p.m. 2014

Fiddle player April Verch gives as much importance to her violin as her voice, the two lending equal melody to her songs. Her latest album, Bright Like Gold, incorporates elements of Celtic jigs and reels into the bluegrass setting. Peppered with charming instrumentals like "Evening Star Waltz" and "Davy Davy, Folding Down the Sheets," her new album illustrates a traditionalist perspective on classic fiddling. Her faint and innocent voice offers a contrast to her bold playing. As a performer in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, she's positioned herself as one of Canada's foremost fiddlers. Backed by guitar and banjo, her trio performs endlessly charming folk music and you can expect tonight's show to follow suit. (Stoops)
