“Pied Pumkin” coming to Cawston Hall July 24

Pioneers of “rogue folk” to visit Cawston for performance

Absolutely original, slightly organic and eternally orange, iconic B.C. folk trio Pied Pumkin will play a Family Concert/Dance at Cawston Hall on Tuesday July 24 at 7:30 p.m. All ages will be delighted by this lively, irreverent trio who pioneered rogue folk in B.C.

Rick Scott, Joe Mock and Shari Ulrich are staging a reunion tour to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. They received a standing ovation in the rain on the first night of the very first Vancouver festival in 1978.

Infamous for fearless arrangements, flawless harmonies and theatrical hi-jinx. Pied Pumkin were the soundtrack to the mid 70s, touring far and wide and selling over 30,000 LPS from the stage.

When Shari left to join the Hometown Band, Rick and Joe continued touring and recording for eight years as Pied Pear. Then each went on to a successful solo career. Pied Pumkin reunited by popular demand in 1998 after a twenty year hiatus.

Rick Scott is an award winning singer, songwriter and storyteller who plays in nine countries. Shari Ulrich’s many kudos include two Junos: she teaches songwriting and tours her original music solo and with several groups. After a decade in Japan, Joe Mock now lives and works in France.

Tickets for the show are $15 adult and $5 child, available in advance at   or at the door. For further information contact (name and number /email)
