Ulrich

Juno Award winner, Shari Ulrich is known for playing the fiddle, mandolin, dulcimer, flute and sax with Pied Pumkin, the Hometown Band, and for her skills as a solo singer-songwriter.

Her latest release, Find Our Way, is her seventh solo album, and the 19th oeuvre of her career.

A songwriting educator for 20 years, and currently Vancouver producer of the Bluebird North songwriter series, Ulrich offers a rich experience in both her concerts and workshops, including one which begins Friday in Maple Ridge.

Whether you’re a seasoned songwriter or wish you were, Ulrich’s workshop will be a valuable exploration into this unique creative expression.

It will primarily use the work of the participants as a vehicle to discuss the elements of effective songwriting.

More experienced writers will be encouraged take the opportunity to focus on re-writing.

For those sharing their work, whether a finished song or in progress, you can play it from a recorded CD, self accompanied on an instrument, or a cappella. There will be a guitar, piano and CD player available.

• The song writing seminar is being hosted by Roca Music on Friday and Saturday. Seating is limited. For more information, call 604-463-8935 or visit www.rocamusic.ca.
