Carla Ulbrich is insightful, smart, and charming. Oh, yeah, and wicked, wicked funny. Behind the smirk, the sarcasm, and the wit is an amazing ability to humanize the world’s woes with a huge dose of the ridiculous. She’s got the voice, the guitar chops and the delivery of a great entertainer, with the take-charge presence of a great comedienne – because that’s what she is. Take the tiniest moment, turn it into the absurdest embarrassment, throw in a pinch of self-deprecation and a wink. That’s Carla.
Touring since about 1997, Carla has performed in England, Canada, and much of the US (including Alaska), appearing at venues small and large. She has graced the stages of the Bluebird Cafe, Eddie’s Attic, the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Florida Folk Festival, South Florida Folk Festival, Wildflower! Arts and Music Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Avalon Nude Folk Festival, DragonCon, MarsCon, FenCon (and numerous other science fiction and/or filk conventions), various colleges, a few comedy clubs, private and corporate parties, nursing, patient and caregiver conventions, a few unusual weddings, and the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention. Her 2004 album Sick Humor deals with Carla’s real-life recovery from multiple strokes and kidney failure that she suffered in 2002. This collection of songs has led to appearances at The Alaska Palliative Care conference, Medicaid, the Association of Applied and Therapeutic Humor, the Society for Arts in Healthcare, and other medical gatherings. Her song If I Had the Copyright was featured in the 2006 documentary Fuck, directed by Steve Anderson.
Join Carla and the Folk Project for an hour of laughter, sharp wit, and a break from everything you once considered normal.
