Jake Shimabukuro (2011 Season)

Thu, Mar 31, 2011 @ 8:00 PM, Campbell Hall

Back by popular demand! “Today, the ukulele means something much cooler and infinitely more versatile, thanks to the startling virtuosity, musical inquisitiveness and sheer charm of Jake Shimabukuro.” The Baltimore Sun Hawaiian-born Jake Shimabukuro has redefined what it means to play the ukulele. Renowned for his lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary technique, this young virtuoso is “doing for the ukulele what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar” (San Francisco Chronicle) with prodigious playing that defies labels or category. Known for his ability to play everything, from lilting original compositions to pop and American songbook standards, Shimabukuro views the ukulele as an “untapped source of music with unlimited potential.” Prepare to be delighted by the pure joy and intensity of this ukulele renegade. Pre-event Wine & Cheese Party - $8

Generously supported by C’est Cheese, Alma Rosa
