There are likely few Canadians who don’t know the voice of Shari Ulrich. A long time friend of Blue Frog Studios, she is a two-time Juno award winner and BC Entertainment Hall of Fame Inductee, and a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year. Shari has been an unflagging fixture in Canadian music since the early 70’s.
Originally a California girl, Shari'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 in (UHF), Barney Bentall & Tom Taylor (BTU), and The High Bar Gang, a 7 piece bluegrass band with Barney Bentall & Colin Nairne.
Shari’s soaring vocals are heard on hit songs such as “(Fear of) Flying”, “I’m Ready” and “She Remembers”. Shari will be joined for this special show at Blue Frog by her daughter Julia Graff, an accomplished musician, recording engineer and producer, on violin, mandolin, guitar, accordion and vocals; Kirby Barber on bass, and Dave Barber on banjo & guitar – both members of the High Bar Gang; and drummer Geoff Hicks.
Join us in welcoming Shari and her band for another "Live from Blue Frog" series recorded concert.
