The second Blenders Special Concert will feature the talented April Verch on Friday, Nov. 4 at the Lyric Theatre.


Fiddler, singer, and stepdancer, Verch knows the relevance of an old tune. She grew up surrounded by living, breathing roots music — her father’s country band rehearsing in the beloved Verch family room; the lively music at church and at community dances; the tunes she rocked out to win fiddle competitions — and decided early she wanted to be a professional musician.
She took that jump, and has been quietly leaping into new, nuanced places for more than two decades.
Moving from exuberant stepdancer to fiddle wunderkind and silver-voiced singer, Verch may still spend many a fond hour rehearsing at home and not on tour, but like tradition itself, she has never been content to stand still.
“When you really know and love this music, you want to go deeper, to bring out new dimensions, without straying too much into novelty,” says Verch.
“I’ve lived with these songs and tunes, and my job is to get out of the way and let them hit the listener. To let them shine on their own and to leave space for interpretation.
“It’s all about touching people, about bringing them together in a community to celebrate music. I’ve understood that better and better as time has passed: how to take this music that is at the center of my life, and make it live and breathe for other people.”
Fiddler, singer, stepdancer Verch will provide an amazing evening of excellent music.
Tickets are $40 and are available at Pharmasave. Doors at the Lyric Theatre will open at 7:30 p.m. and the music will begin at 8:30 p.m.
