Pied Pumkin rolls into Mission’s Fraser River Heritage Park on Wednesday, July 25 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Pied Pumkids is a family show produced by the trio Pied Pumkin, comprising Joe Mock, Shari Ulrich and Rick Scott.

The Pumkin usually tour once a year as all three enjoy extensive solo success.

Mock lives in France and has been performing in Europe.

Ulrich, who has won two Junos and a John Lennon Songwriting Award, gives concerts and song workshops, produces the Bluebird North songwriter series, and tours solo and with the Highbar Gang and several trios.

Scott has created seven CDs for children, three of which have been nominated for Juno Awards. He has won numerous awards from parenting organizations for his work.

In 2008, Pied Pumkin released “Pumkids” – a CD featuring 12 tuneful tales for all ages. They performed the Pumkids family show at Canadian children’s festivals and community halls.

The Pumkids show in Mission combines songs from the CD and Scott’s award-winning children’s repertoire.

The show is composed of folk, novelty, and folk-rock songs featuring beautiful harmonies and bouncy, toe-tapping melodies, including two sung in French.
