Trio taking the stage at the Fanny Bay Hall

The Shari Ulrich Trio will be playing at the Fanny Bay Hall on Saturday 14 April, beginning at 7 p.m.

Shari Ulrich (Juno award winner, Canadian Folk Music Award Songwriter of the Year, and veteran of The Pied Pumkin, The Hometown Band, UHF, BTU and The High Bar Gang) performs with her daughter Julia Graff (on violin, mandolin, guitar & vocals) and fellow High Bar Gang member Kirby Barber (on bass, guitar and vocals). The gorgeous three-part female harmonies alone are worth the price of admission.

Featuring a variety of her original songs, Ulrich will be performing on piano, guitar, mandolin and violin with her signature spontaneity, warmth and sense of humour and a few new tricks up her sleeve.

Originally a California girl, Ulrich’s 40 year career from Pied Pumkin, through The Hometown Band, and on as a solo artist and multi-instrumentalist has lead to 23 albums including her collaboration with UHF Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes , Barney Bentall & Tom Taylor (BTU), and The High Bar Gang, a seven-piece bluegrass band with Barney Bentall & Colin Nairne.

Her work has garnered two Juno awards, an induction into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, and a 2014 CFM Award for English Songwriter of the Year.

Through it all Ulrich raised daughter Julia Graff, now 27 with a masters in sound recording from McGill University – an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, busy recording engineer, producer, graphic designer, videographer and photographer. Graff engineered their last three albums and produced two videos for the High Bar Gang’s recently Juno nominated True North album.

Tickets, $22 in advance, $25 at the door, are available at Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay, Weinberg’s Good Foods in Buckley Bay and Salish Sea Market in Bowser.
