April Verch concert offers a multi-sensory experience
"To witness a performance by April Verch is to participate in a multi-sensory experience. Some of the many hats she wears include fiddler, singer and stepdancer, all of which she combines into a single performance.” –HeartStrings. Please join us on Saturday, April 9 for this stunning display of talent when the April Verch Band hits the stage of the historic Thrasher Opera House for the very first time on Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m.
April Verch steps, sings, and fiddles with a fresh and feisty approach to deep North American traditions. Touring the world to share songs from her milestone 10th album (The Newpart), Verch and her band - featuring bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters, and guitarist and mandolinist Lucas Chohany - keep the community-fired celebratory side of their traditional music at the forefront, honing a keen awareness of how to engage contemporary listeners. At the heart lie Verch’s delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing, a trifecta of talents she brings together simultaneously to jaw-dropping effect. Even as she plays with the tradition she inherited in her native Ottawa Valley, Verch’s energetic and breathtaking performances speak to the heart of roots music with mature and reflective songwriting, interpreting, and storytelling.
Tickets for the concert are $22 and available at the Thrasher office, Horicon Bank (Green Lake); Pick N’ Save, Ripon Drug (Ripon); Twister (Princeton) or by calling (920) 294-4279. Online tickets available at www.thrasheroperahouse.com.
