The absolutely original and iconic B.C. folk trio Pied Pumkin will play a family concert in Cawston.

The absolutely original and iconic B.C. folk trio Pied Pumkin will play a family concert in Cawston.

Rick Scott, Joe Mock and Shari Ulrich are staging a reunion tour to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival with a stop at Cawston hall on July 24 at 7:30 p.m. The Cawston concert is an all ages event for the trio who pioneered rogue folk in B.C.

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 Ulrich left to join the Hometown Band, Scott and Mock 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 20-year hiatus.

Scott is an award winning singer, songwriter and storyteller. His seven children’s albums have been nominated for three Juno awards and won The Parents Choice award among other accolades. In fall of 2012 he plans on releasing The Great Gazzoon, a four-CD musical audio novel.

Ulrich’s many kudos include two Junos and the John Lennon Songwriting Award. She also teaches songwriting and tours her original music solo and with several groups. Her latest release is called Find Our Way.

After a decade in Japan, Mock now lives and works in France. He released The Jozu based on his adventures in Tokyo.

Tickets for the show are $15 for adults and $4 for children and are available in advance at the Cawston Marketplace and Similkameen Agency or at the door.
