I kept running into ukuleles a couple years ago. (Still do, actually) On stages, videos and in the arms of students wandering around campus, it seems the ukulele is making a comeback - or a comeforward – of mythic proportions. Then a friend showed me a youtube video of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and I knew that we needed a season of excitement and pure joyful fun that the ukulele could provide. So I held a date for them and started looking for more.
Adding Jake Shimabukuro was a no brainer, he's so good, so filled with light and looking to shine it onto the world. Then I found out that Eric Bibb was touring with Habib Koite and found a few more juicy pieces for us to enjoy. It all came together when Bobby McFerrin was confirmed. A fun, joyful, exciting season we can all look forward to!
