April Verch, a good friend of ours at 'Fiddle Camp' over these past several years, has been both a joy to be around and to watch grow up in the world of fiddling! This album suggests that her music lives comfortably in a wonderfully old-timey setting that contains equal inspiration from her natural Canadian music traditions, as well as her love for the mountain music of the southern United States. Heartfelt and well done April!' -Mark O'Connor, 12/31/02 The music of April Verch is guaranteed to make you smile and tap your foot! Grounded in the unique Ottawa Valley fiddling style (a fresh sound for world music, folk and fiddle fans!), April taps Scottish, Latin and French Canadian influences, as well as making her debut as a vocalist on this sparkling and eclectic set.
