All those talents are on display on The Newpart, her 10th album. It was produced by Casey Driessen at Sound Temple Studios in Asheville, NC, last October, with Verch accompanied by ts Cody Walters and Hayes Griffin. Verch is also a virtuoso stepdancer, and that is showcased on her first solo footwork piece, "Gilchrist".

It’s just April Verch and her two string band sidekicks making their way around Ireland following the release of her 10th album. The set is as engaging as the story behind its name. In the late 1970s her parents added to their converted Ontario schoolhouse home and called it the Newpart. It would become the site of many sessions rich in music and memory. This theme of small history informs the album as Verch leans heavily on old country and vaudeville tunes and songs. The lively opener Belle Election is a strong example as is It Don’t Do Nothing But Rain. Verch has a light, sweet, reedy voice.

April Verch steps, sings, and fiddles with a fresh and feisty approach to deep North American traditions. At the heart lie Verch’s delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing, a trifecta of talents she brings together simultaneously to jaw-dropping effect
