BOOTHBAY HARBOR — April Verch and her band return to at the Opera House on Saturday, touring in support of her new album.

In February, she released “The April Verch Anthology,” an 18-track collection celebrating her life’s work. Hand-picked by Verch, the songs on this compilation offer a mix of regional Canadian, American old-time, bluegrass, country and Americana tracks.

While Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and far beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch and her fellow trio members pare down their arrangements, highlighting the simple pleasures of upright bass, guitar, clawhammer banjo, voices, fiddle, and stepping in intimate conversation.

Advance purchase tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students under 18. Tickets on the day of the concert are $25 for all. Tickets are available through the Opera House box office at 86 Townsend Ave., or by calling 633-5159. Tickets and information are also available at

Doors for seating open at 7 p.m. and the music begins at 7:30 p.m. For additional information, visit
