Program to be announced.

One of the world’s most exciting and innovative ukulele players and composers, Jake Shimabukuro is bringing his lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques to Orange County. Playing jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco, and rock, Jake views the ukulele as an “untapped source of music with unlimited potential,” and his mission is to show that the ukulele is capable of much more than traditional Hawaiian music.

“Shimabukuro has elevated this simple, four string, two octave instrument to a classical artform. He is able to cross a range of genres with ease, using skills appropriate to each. He produces string sounds resembling an acoustic tenor guitar that mix flamenco, classical, blues, and acoustic rock fingerstyling.” -
