Pied Pumkin rides again

Castlegar favoured to host what will certainly be a memorable show

They’re back!

Absolutely original, slightly organic and eternally orange, iconic B.C. folk trio Pied Pumkin is celebrating their reunion tour this July with a show in Castlegar at the Castle Theatre on Monday, July 23 at  8 pm.

Rick Scott, Joe Mock and Shari Ulrich are infamous for fearless arrangements, flawless harmonies and spirited theatrics. Pied Pumkin pioneered rogue folk in B.C. in 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 as Pied Pear. Each went on to a successful solo career. Pied Pumkin reunited by popular demand in 1998 after a 20-year hiatus.

Rick Scott is an award winning singer, songwriter and raconteur who plays in nine countries. Shari Ulrich’s many kudos include two Junos: she tours her original music with her now 22-year-old daughter, as well as with several other groups, and after a decade in Japan, Joe Mock now lives and works in France
