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!

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!

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.”
