Join us for an afternoon of live music at Frinklepod Farm! We are ecstatic to welcome April Verch and her band to the outdoor "stage" at The Pod. Whether you are celebrating Father's Day, Summer Solstice, or just that awesome feeling of enjoying a live performance with others, we hope you will join us. Tasty treats and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. BYOB. In the event of rain, the show will be indoors.
Doors open at 3:30, the show starts at 4pm.
Please Note: We are offering a limited number of tickets available due to our limited parking and indoor space, and it is very likely we will "sell out" before the day of the show. Please plan ahead and buy your tickets in advance!
Bow. Feet. Vox. A trifecta of talent, keeping tradition feisty.
While April Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native OttawaValley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch tours with world-class musicians as a trio, featuring acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass and clawhammer banjo in addition to Verch’s vocals, fiddle and foot percussion.
One might suspect a performer with as many talents as Verch would pause to take a breath, or need to somewhat compartmentalize her skills during a live performance. But on stage, Verch is almost superhuman, flawlessly intertwining and overlapping different performative elements. She stepdances while fiddling. She sings while stepdancing. 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.
