Join Northern Lights Folk Club for their presentation of Bentall Taylor Ulrich on Saturday, April 8, 2023 at Parkview Community League, 9135 146 Street NW. Doors open at 7PM, show at 8PM.
Comprised of members Barney Bentall, Tom Taylor and Shari Ulrich, Bentall Taylor Ulrich first played together in November 2007 at a songwriter concert on Bowen Island. Their continued collaboration grew from the undeniable enjoyment for both the artists and their audiences. One year later, they returned to Cates Hill Chapel and recorded Live at Cates Hill: an eclectic mix of the character, voices and songwriting talents of these three unique artists. With juggling all their respective projects it took until the summer of 2015 to embark on recording a second album. With Shari’s daughter Julia Graff and partner James Parrella engineering, they set up camp in Barney’s house with his two golden retrievers, Haddie and Tilly providing inspiration and wags at the appropriate moments. The teamwork was effortless and created an album of which all involved are exceedingly proud.
Barney Bentall and his band The Legendary Hearts recorded and toured extensively in Canada through the late 80s and 90s. In 2000, Barney traded in his rock and roll life for that of a cattle rancher in the Cariboo, deciding that he would only write songs when they wouldn't leave him alone. “It was an interesting and challenging time that I wouldn’t trade for the world but ultimately the call of music ruled the day”.
Tom Taylor has spent most of his musical career playing in the Vancouver cult band "She Stole My Beer". After two albums and years of touring, the band took a hiatus, prompting Tom to pursue songwriting as a solo artist. Taylor carries on the classic tradition of the singer/songwriter - a troubadour who can effortlessly draw listeners into his world.
Shari Ulrich's finesse on violin, mandolin, flute, piano, sax and dulcimer was first heard in the early 70s with the Pied Pumkin. Her work with the Hometown Band paved the way for her solo career as a touring songwriter. A couple of Juno awards and several nominations have affirmed her place in Canadian music. Shari is also a songwriting educator, and produces the long running (23 years!) SongBird North (formerly Bluebird North) songwriter series in Vancouver.
