It’s time once again for the Annual Ukulele Fest, a joint effort of the Sandwich Arts Alliance, Glass Town Cultural District, and Score Music Studio, under the direction of Steve Gregory.
Originating in Portugal, the ukulele is most closely associated with Hawaii as Portuguese instrument-makers emigrated to the Big Island in the 1880’s. The ukulele is enjoying a resurgence of popularity in recent years. This four-stringed cousin of the guitar comes in four “flavors:” soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Ukulele music can be complex or comical, and it’s always entertaining.
Students of various levels of experience will have a chance to perform at Ukulele Fest. There will also be seasoned groups performing. All ages are welcome for an afternoon of music that’ll have you tapping your toes...and maybe leave you longing for a ukulele of your very own.
WHEN: Sunday March 5, 2017 3:00-5:00 PM
WHERE: Sandwich Town Hall, 130 Main Street
TICKETS: $5 at the door
