“Knockout…Brimful with feeling…Expansive… the Russian style is elegantly generous, and so the experience is never meager. Kids…were wide-eyed with delight.” ~ New York Times

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 far beyond, for a well--rounded tour--de--force of North Americana sounds. Verch and her fellow trio members pare down their arrangements, highlighting the simple pleasures of upright bass, guitar, clawhammer banjo, voices, fiddle, and stepping in intimate conversation. At the heart lie Verch’s delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing. 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.
