Juno Award-winner and BC Entertainment Hall of Fame inductee Shari Ulrich has been a fixture in Canadian music since the early 1970s.
On Aug. 11, Ulrich will play for an intimate house concert audience at Two Eagles Lodge in Union Bay.
She will be accompanied by her daughter, Julia Graff, who plays violin, piano, guitar and accordion in addition to singing vocals. Ted Littlemore, who studied music with Graff, will join the mother-daughter team; he plays piano and accordion in addition to singing vocals.
Ulrich was first heard in the quirky and eternally orange group Pied Pumkin, with whom she played fiddle, mandolin, dulcimer, flute and sax.
Her defection to the Hometown Band and a high-profile launch to national recognition sparked her solo career as a singer-songwriter. Her recent release, Find Our Way, is her seventh solo album and her 19th including her work with Pied Pumkin, UHF and her recent collaboration with Barney Bentall and Tom Taylor.
Seats for the evening performance are $22 and are very limited. Call Carolyn at 250-335-2342 to reserve your seat or e-mail HaveFun@TwoEaglesLodge.com.
Two Eagles Lodge, an award-winning B&B which opened in 2007, is located at 6409 Island Highway South, just north of the Buckley Bay ferry terminal.
The owners, Carolyn and Steve Touhey, are great fans of live music and are happy to host such an intimate event with such talented musicians.
In addition to hosting house concerts periodically, Two Eagles Lodge is also a sponsor of Vancouver Island Music Business Conference (VIMBC) and Vancouver Island Music Fest.
“House concerts are an incredible evening for everyone — to have such world-class entertainment right at home, surrounded by other music lovers,” said Carolyn. “We never thought about our home and bed-and-breakfast as a venue for events, but it has worked out great.”
