Friday May 24 at 8 pm, $15 advance, $20 door (reserve 905-543-8512). Artword Artbar is delighted to announce a special concert by the Juno award winning West Coast singer-songwriter Shari Ulrich with daughter Julia Graff and Ted Littlemore. Shari, an amazing multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, mandolin, guitar, piano, dulcimer and vocals), is most known for her incomparable voice. She is touring with her trio which consists of her daughter Julia Graff (currently engineering and producing Shari’s new album) on violin, mandolin, guitar, piano, accordion and vocals, and her McGill classmate Ted Littlemore on piano, accordion and vocals. Though Julia has been performing with Shari for over a decade, the trio has been touring primarily in the summers while Julia and Ted are out of school. The trio is a wonderful blend of two generations and has been delighting audiences wherever they go. Click here to download the Shari Ulrich poster pdf.
Shari was first heard in the early 70’s with Pied Pumkin on fiddle, flute, and alto sax, hit the airwaves with the Hometown Band’s “Flying”, now a Canadian Classic. She’s been a solo artist since the mid-80’s, along with joining forces with Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes in UHF, with Barney Bentall and Tom Taylor in BTU, and most recently with the Bluegrass Band “The Highbar Gang” along with Barney Bentall and Colin Nairne. She has earned two Juno awards and several nominations for her work, and has been inducted into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame. Though she has long been known as a multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, mandolin, guitar, piano, & dulcimer) she is most known for her incomparable voice….and her first love, which is songwriting – telling the stories of our lives. She is a warm, engaging and quick witted performer whose love and appreciation of music is evident and contagious.
