About this Event
Shari Ulrich hosts:
The Songwriters Association of Canada’s SongBird North celebrates with a powerhouse line-up of singer-songwriters: host Shari Ulrich will share the Roundhouse stage with Jeff Plankenhron, Rick Scott and Suzie Ungerleider.. Bringing together rising stars with established, often iconic artists, and showcasing a range of styles and backgrounds, SongBird North offers an evening of great songs, great stories, and fascinating insights into the creative process. It’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get up close (but not too close!) and personal with the music and the artists who create and perform it.SongBird North: Where Writers Sing and Tell is produced by Shari Ulrich for the Songwriters Association of Canada. The SAC gratefully acknowledges the support of the SOCAN Foundation. For more information on the SAC’s mandate, activities and membership programs, please visit www.songwriters.ca.
BACKGROUND: Since 1995, SongBird North (formerly Bluebird North) has been a mainstay in Vancouver for songwriters from across the continent, as a bi-monthly showcase that features four talented singer/songwriters of widely varying styles, on stage together, taking turns playing their original songs and sharing stories with one another and the audience about their work. While the series was started in Toronto and has toured nationally, Vancouver remains its longest-standing host city. www.songwriters.ca
