Irish tour by April Verch and her band - 10th - 16th May 2017

Moving On Music have announced a new Irish tour by the incredibly talented fiddler singer and step dancer April Verch, and her band from 10th to 16th May, visiting Omagh, Portaferry, Antrim, Armagh, Belfast and Dublin.

A captivating performer, April has been touring extensively for over two decades and has recently released an 18-track album documenting her work, ‘The April Verch Anthology’.

While Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch tours with world-class musicians as a trio, featuring acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass and clawhammer banjo in addition to Verch’s vocals, fiddle and foot percussion.

With an ‘almost superhuman’ presence on stage, April flawlessly intertwines her fiddle playing, stepdancing and singing; 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.
