It will soon be all things ukulele in Bend, Oregon when Uke U-4 raises the roof from July 17 through 19–just a few weeks away. They have a great lineup of performers and instructors, including Sarah Maisel and Craig Chee (who just completed a new recording), Aaron and Nicole Keim (The Quiet American), Ben Bonham and Ronnie Ontiveros, Pipa Piñon, Jeff Stevens, Rhan Wilson, Rick Zeek, Cinda Johnson, and hula/uke/Hawaiian culture instructor Kumu Iwalani.
I’ll be there (with daughter and new ukulele convert Meghan) with two instruments–Richard Parker, and Watson. Further introductions in following posts. Aloha to friends of yore and those about-to-be, see you soon!
