As you know, I often pass along information about Al Rankin’s music productions and concerts and this is one that I’m particularly excited about because his next Rankin Gallery show features a particularly talented and impressive client of mine! So without further ado, here’s Al’s note to you:
Wow! It’s another great one with one of Canada’s finest roots musicians. I’m excited to announce that Juno Award winner Shari Ulrich, from Bowen Island BC, will be onstage at the Rankin Gallery less than one month from now, on Saturday, June 2nd at 8 pm. You may know Shari from the supergroup UHF with Roy Forbes and Bill Henderson. Before that she was one-third of that wonderful and influential BC trio Pied Pumkin.
During her illustrious career Shari has won countless awards including 2 Junos. Shari will be bringing along her trio (Shari, Julia Graff & Ted Littlemore), so onstage we’re likely to have guitars, violins, a cello, a mandolin and an accordion and of course great 3-part harmonies featuring Shari’s unmistakable and ethereal voice.
This will be another very quick sell-out so if you’d like a seat or 2 please email me quickly. Come and spend a beautiful spring evening in the country listening to some sublime music!
Here are the details:
SHARI ULRICH TRIO
Sat., June 2nd, 8 pm
Rankin Gallery, 3248 Round Lake Rd., Inverary, ON
Suggested donation: $20
By reservation only: email@example.com
For the last 8 years or so I’ve put on intimate concerts at the gallery space in my home near Inverary. I have been able to host some wonderful touring musicians such as Valdy from BC, The Wailin’ Jennys from Winnipeg, Bill Bourne from Alberta, Coco Love Alcorn and Kate Reid from BC, Marc Atkinson Trio from BC, The Dust Poets from Manitoba, Eliza Gilkyson from Texas, Fruit from Australia, The Pacific Curls from New Zealand, Jez Lowe from the UK, Maeve Mackinnon from Scotland, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Chuck Brodsky and Jonathan Byrd from North Carolina, Alan Gerber from Quebec, Amelia Curran from NFLD, James Hill from NS, Rose Cousins from PEI as well as great Ontario musicians such as Rick Fines, Lynn Miles, The Marigolds, Dala, The Undesirables, Claire Jenkins and Treasa Levasseur and The Good Lovelies and New Country Rehab.
People bring something to drink, maybe a snack, and a donation for the musicians. The audience loves the intimacy of the space and getting to talk to the artists. The musicians love it too, as it allows them to connect in a way that is different than a large concert hall. It is open to anyone on my mailing list and works on a first come first served reservation-only basis. I have 60 spots and it always fills up very quickly shortly after I send out a message about a month before the concert.
See you at the music!
