Interview: April Verch and Canada's fiddling traditions

SITKA, ALASKA While Canadian fiddle music is closely tied to Celtic traditions, Ottowa Valley fiddler April Verch says every region has distinctive styles. Verch was one of five fiddlers to perform at the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympics. The April Verch Band performs tonight (3-18-10) at the Sitka Performing Arts Center. She and bass/banjo player Cody Walters discuss their Southeast tour with KCAW's Robert Woolsey.
