Canadian fiddle and step dancing champion and singer. Though her musical roots dig deep into her native Ottawa Valley, Verch’s seeming ability to fluently play any kind of roots music as though it was her native tongue has fueled her international tours with a diverse repertoire of both traditional and contemporary tunes ranging in source and inspiration from Quebecois to the Appalachians, from Bluegrass to Brazilia. On her eighth and most recent recording, That’s How We Run, Verch tackles old-timey Southern mountain music. As it turns out, plucky, straight-backed Canadian tunes fit snugly beside ancient Appalachian reels in Verch’s hands, one style influences and invigorates the other. We are happy to welcome one of Americana’s best singer-fiddlers to Tulsa.
