Canadian fiddler April Verch may have focused her talents at the Berklee School of Music, but her scope continues to expand beyond the traditional bounds of her chosen instrument to encompass everything from jazz to Western swing to South America. It’s all folk music, of course, but Verch specializes in stretching the standard definition of that word.
