Carla Ulbrich: Professional Smart Aleck



Winner, Winfield Song Contest (Humorous Category)


We're going' to Winfield!

The Walnut Valley Festival (in Kansas) has been on my bucket list for a long time, and we had already decided to go when I learned that my song "Gotta Start Smokin' " was selected as one of the 2 winners for the Humorous category of the song contest there (You didn't think I'd win the prize in the "love songs" category, did you?).

I'll be playing that song (don't blink! You'll miss me!) Thursday morning (Sept. 15), as will the other Thursday winners (there is a set of winners playing on Thursday and a different set of song contest winners playing on Saturday- same contest, 2 winners in each category).



#5 artist, #6 song, and #9 album for March 2016!


Folk radio was very good to us in March!

I was the #5 artist, with the #6 song ("Totally Average Woman," a blues spoof & the title track from the CD) and the #9 album ("Totally Average Woman").
