SHARI ULRICH I've been incredibly fortunate on this road. I've released lots of albums (21) and been in lots of trios (3) with remarkably talented, handsome and wonderful men - Rick Scott & Joe Mock of The Pied Pumkin, Bill Henderson & Roy Forbes in UHF, Barney Bentall & Tom Taylor in BTU, and of course a gaggle of them in The Hometown Band and now The High Bar Gang. Lucky, lucky girl.
