Family Concert – Rick Scott & Shari Ulrich – Irresistible Music for all ages

Gatineau, Quebec, 28 November 2007 – The whole family will enjoy the warm and lively rhythms and melodies of Rick Scott and Shari Ulrich. These exceptional artists, members of the legendary Vancouver trio Pied Pumkin String Ensemble, will be performing at noon on December 2 in the Grand Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization.

Pied Pumkin String Ensemble won awards as Outstanding Children’s Recording and Parents’ Choice at the Western Canadian Music Awards in 2007 and earned NAPPA Music Honours for its latest album, Pumkids.
