UHF at the Ag Hall outdoor stage - Sat Jul 23


The enigmatically named acoustic/vocal trio, UHF, are Shari Ulrich, Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes, as brilliant a teaming of three disparate talents as a Canadian West Coast accident could ever be.

When they first joined forces in 1989 for what was planned as a one off performance at Vancouver’s Winter Roots Festival, Vancouver born Henderson was best known as the long time lead singer and songwriter for the successful Collectors and Chilliwack bands. Ulrich, an ex-Californian, had been a key member of British Columbia's Pied Pumpkin, The Hometown Band and a respected solo singer/songwriter while Forbes, from Dawson Creek and known for years as Bim, was a long time formidable staple on the North American folk/roots circuit.

Ulrich, Henderson and Forbes are all seasoned and prolific songwriters - indeed, each continues a solo recording and performance career - but it took a special focus to come up with tunes that suited the trio and led to the critical success of two albums;  UHF and UHF II.

The trio will bring the outdoor stage to life at the Ag Hall on Saturday, July 23th. Tickets are on sale at Happy Tides and Home Hardware. Don’t miss this one!
