The March 21st, 2015 edition of “Fiddlers Green” will present the rollicking music of The Irish Brothers and the lyrical humor of folk’s “funny girl” Carla Ulbrich. The monthly coffeehouse-style concert is presented by Atlanta Area Friends of Folk Music and co-sponsored by and hosted at Steve’s Live Music, 234 Hilderbrand Drive, Sandy Springs, GA. The doors open at 6:30 PM and the show begins at 7:00 PM. It’s only $10 for the general public and $8 for AAFFM members (minimum, greater donations appreciated by the performers). THE IRISH BROTHERS Opening the evening will be The Irish Brothers - Sandy “Sandyman” Flynn and “Captain” George Hergen, a unique team. Sandyman comes from the mountains of western North Carolina; the Captain hailing from the canyons of New York City. Sandy is a former songwriter on Music Row (Tree-Sony/ATV) in Nashville. George honed his craft by traveling throughout Ireland with the great Tommy Makem. Both draw from their Irish heritage for material. Their music practically maps the Irish cultural integration into the ‘new country’ - from traditional Irish ballads, to original songs of love, drinking, revolution and redemption. CARLA ULBRICH Carla Ulbrich is a comical singer-songwriter and guitarist from Clemson, South Carolina and currently living in New Jersey. (Insert your own punchline here.) She calls herself “a professional smart aleck.” Primarily known for writing humorous songs about such topics as wedgies, the Waffle House, Klingons and how rich she would be if she had a copyright on the 'F' Word, she has won numerous awards including First Place in the South Florida Folk Festival Songwriter Competition and “Novelty Song of the Year” at the Just Plain Folks Awards. Carla cites her biggest musical influences as Sesame Street, camp song, and cat food commercials. Carla is also a survivor of catastrophic illness and author of the resulting book, “How Can You NOT Laugh at a Time Like This?” During her many hours in doctors’ waiting rooms she wrote humorous parodies lampooning her frustrating experience with the U.S. health care system, which she released on her best-selling 2004 CD "Sick Humor.” Currently at work on her sixth CD, Carla has toured all over the U.S. and England and has appeared on ABC, USA Network, the BBC, Dr. Demento, Sirius XM Radio and The Bob and Sherrie Show, as well as appearing as a background actor in “Sharknado 2.” Come and enjoy a great meal at Steve’s while being treated to delightful acoustic performances.
