California & Arizona from Nov 9-19

I feel like it’s been years since we properly toured out west. (I’m too lazy to look up exactly when it was, I just want to look forward!) Click through for details on our November west coast tour!

“Trad Command” playlist on Spotify

If you’re a Spotify user, check out my new curated playlist “Trad Command”. This playlist is comprised of gorgeous artists who are the offshoots of traditional music; sometimes directly, other times indirectly. The music they create inspires & delights me.

Indiana & Ohio ~ Oct 26-28

We’re so excited to visit OH & IN just as the autumn leaves begin to turn this month. It’s been a busy summer and a wonderful year and we’re ready to make sure the last few months of 2017 are as fun and music filled as possible! Join us in Nashville, Peninsula & Delphi.

NY & MA from Oct 12-15

We’re heading to the North East as the autumn leaves begin to turn. While we enjoy playing a variety of different venues and finding new ones along the way, this tour will be extra special for us we return to 4 of our faves that we’ve not visited in a few years!

Newberry & Verch at World of Bluegrass

We are delighted to be in Raleigh this week for IBMA’s “World of Bluegrass”!  In addition to meetings and panels, we’ll be doing some showcases and some StreetFest performances.  Our schedule is below – we hope to pass you in a crowded hallway!

All North Carolina, All September!

We hope this finds you well and easing back into the fall routine! If you need a little break from it all, please consider joining us at one of our NC gigs this September!

Showcase at AmericanaFest

We’re delighted to be showcasing in Folk Music Canada’s “Canada in Nashville” event at AmericanaFest on Friday, September 15!

Ozark Folk, Delaware Valley Bluegrass & a Barn concert!

It’s that bitter sweet end of summer time, and we hope you are enjoying every last bit! We’ve had a good one and are looking forward to even more touring and fun before falls peeks its way out of the trees! The end of August takes AVB to Arkansas, New Jersey & Pennsylvania! We’ve included links & details in this post for you at a glance!

Summer Schedule

We try to keep the top post on this page fresh with what’s up next, but to be honest, we’re bouncing around so much and so quickly this summer that it’s getting tough! The next few weeks see us visit Virgina, Nebraska, North Carolina, Delaware, Alberta, British Columbia for a mix of festivals, special events, regular concerts, summer concert series, string camps…

Celebrating Canada 150!

We are extremely excited to be headed back to Canada to help celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday. So many wonderful celebrations and events have been planned and will take place (all year long!) and we can’t wait to come together with you in honour of this very special occasion for events in BC, ON & AB through July & August!

Thanks to Andrew Chaney for including me on his great podcast and for chatting about “The April Verch Anthology!”  Listen to it (and his other great work) right HERE.

Next stops PA, MI, IL, NC, NE & VA

The summer is heating up and so is touring for AVB! Things have been non-stop since May… The next tours jump around enough that’s it’s almost impossible to name just the “regions”. The July newsletter (with immediate stops in PA, MI, IL & NC) is HERE!

Feature in Blue Ridge Outdoors

We had too much fun answering the interview questions for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine!  See the feature, hear the track, then “go outside and play” as they would say!

AVB in Europe this May

We are thrilled to visit our friends in Europe for the month of May! Tour stops include Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, UK, Ireland, Spain & Czech Republic!

Minnesota & Wisconsin in April

Before we head overseas for the month of May, we’ll make 2 stops each in MN & WI!  I’m celebrating my birthday all month long so come out and join the party ;)  HERE is where you can find us!

New Release Available Now!

The April Verch Anthology (Slab Town Records), an 18-track collection celebrating her life’s work, is available now!

Feature interview for Anti-Heroin Chic

Anti-Heroin Chic is a collective journal of poetry, photography, art work, stories, essays, interviews and more. In their words, they “strive for inclusion and a diversity of voices, not to disparage others but to lift them up.” Now THAT is a beautiful thing. We thank them for the feature & interview that went live today!

Podcast Interview on “Mindful Art Studio”

April chats with Amy Maricle for her “You Are An Artist” podcast. They discuss “Playing with Heart: The Beauty of Imperfection.”

Newberry & Verch this weekend!

We’re not Irish, but we dance a mean jig!  Join us this weekend at one of our stops in Stokesdale, NC, Charlottesville, VA or Dunkirk, MD.  Slainte!
