Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Shari Ulrich has entertained, moved and enchanted audiences across Canada and far beyond for over four decades. An exceptional performer, Ulrich’s rich warm voice, dynamic stagecraft and accomplished musicianship as a soloist and bandleader, as well as with the legendary Pied Pumkin, The Hometown Band, UHF, and BTU, among others, have garnered her enthusiastic fans, awards, and accolades from across Canada and around the world.
Shari celebrates 45 years as a touring recording artist and player (violin, mandolin, piano, guitar, dulcimer and harmonica) with the Borealis Records release of her 9th solo album Back to Shore, and a special album release concert at North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre on June 18th.
Back to Shore stands out as one of Ulrich’s finest recordings, featuring 12 new songs that touch on themes ranging from love, infidelity and space travel, to a joyous celebration of Canada, her adopted country. The album also features, among others, contributions from Cara Luft on banjo, John Reischmann on mandolin, Scott Smith on electric guitar and dobro, Michael Creber on piano and B3, Peggy Lee on cello, drummer Geoff Hicks, bassist Rob Becker, and harmony singers Julia Graff and Kirby Barber. The album was produced and engineered by Julia Graff and James Perrella.
Joining Ulrich on stage at the Centennial will be her daughter, Julia Graff (violin, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Kirby Barber (bass, vocals), Cindy Fairbank (piano, accordion), Scott Smith (guitar, banjo, dobro), and drummer, Geoff Hicks – all who play on the new album.
A consummate artist and entertainer, Ulrich continues to have it all. With 2 JUNO Awards, several JUNO nominations, an induction into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame and the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year, her impact on the music scene is undeniable. And, fortunately for her Vancouver fans, she will share her new album with us first.
