April Verch is gigging in Portland on October 20 at Alberta Street Pub in support of her new album, That’s How We Run.
April explores the Southern mountain traditions known as old-time music on That's How We Run, but always brings her Northern roots with her. Plucky, straight-backed Canadian tunes Ã¯Â¬Ât so snugly beside ancient Appalachian airs that you'd think they'd been neighbors for centuries. When she sings her own songs, you feel sultry Southern air blowing through every wet, bluesy slide of “That's How We Run,¬Â just as you feel the tight-shouldered Northern chill in her heartbroken ¬Å“Still Trying.¬Â
Through sinewy old-time American reels or crisp Canadian hops, singing the happy Ontario chestnut ¬Å“Moonshine Mac,¬Â or swapping hot licks with the cream of old time's new breed, like Dirk Powell, Riley Baugus, and Rayna Gellert, April is always being April.
