Sheri Ulrich performing at Grand Forks’ GEM Theatre this Wednesday (July 31)

Grand Forks and Shari Ulrich are old friends from way back – from when she first rolled in with the Pied Pumkin in 1974.

Sheri Ulrich will be in Grand Forks with daughter Julia Graff and Ted Littlemore on July 31 at the GEM Theatre.

Grand Forks and Shari Ulrich are old friends from way back – from when she first rolled in with the Pied Pumkin in 1974.

Her career has been a colourful road through the internationally renowned Hometown Band, on to a successful life as a solo artist and songwriter, with threads woven through of other trios (UHF with Bill Henderson & Roy Forbes, and with BTU with Barney Bentall and Tom Taylor) and occasional tours with the Pumkins.

In the summers, she performs with her daughter Julia Graff (on violin, guitar, mandolin, piano, accordion and vocals) and Graff’s McGill peer Ted Littlemore (on piano, accordion and vocals).  And they’re thrilled to be able to return to the Kootenays this summer.

Graff, now getting her master’s in music in sound recording at McGill, is engineering and producing her mother’s latest album due out in September.

The trio will be performing a concert in Grand Forks at 7:30 p.m. this Wednesday (July 31) at the GEM Theatre.

Tickets are available at Kokomo’s Coffee House, Pharmasave and the GEM Theatre.
