The Orchard in Oyama hosting Juno award winner next weekend

New venue snares award winning artist Shari Ulrich for performance July 26

Shari Ulrich, the Juno award winner and BC Entertainment Hall of Fame Inductee, an unflagging fixture in Canadian music since the early 70’s, will be performing at the Orchard in Oyama next weekend.

Ulrich was first heard in the quirky Pied Pumkin playing fiddle, mandolin, dulcimer, flute & sax. Her defection to the Hometown Band and a high profile launch to national recognition led to her solo career as a singer songwriter.

Her recent release of “Find Our Way” is her 7th solo album, and her 19th including her work with Pied Pumkin, UHF, and her recent collaboration with Barney Bentall & Tom Taylor.

Ulrich will be returning to The Orchard with her daughter, Julia Graff, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, on violin, mandolin, guitar, piano, accordion and vocals as well as Julia’s McGill classmate Ted Littlemore on piano, accordion and vocals.

The trio will be performing songs from throughout Shari’s career as well as songs from the new album. Her shows are always full of warmth, wit, well crafted songs, and the wonderful musicianship of these two generations of fine musicians.

The Orchard is a new venue in Lake Country that showcases performers in a comfortable and intimate setting supporting a community environment. The Orchard is a place for all musicians to play in a warm and relaxing setting over looking Wood and Kalamalka Lake.

All profits from tickets sale go to the artists. The concert goes on July 26. There is more at www.theorchardwebsite.com
