Charm City Ukulele Festival
Charm City celebrates that most charming of instruments – the mighty uke! Born in Hawaiia of Portuguese roots in the 1880s, a star of the Jazz Age, a staple of the Canadian music education system, the uke lost steam post Tiny Tim only to rise again in the early 90s. Tonight we gather an amazing cast of uke players exploring the unpretentious little instrument’s full range – from the Hawaiian tunes to country, 20’s era jazz, Tin Pan Alley and vaudeville and the myriad of forms it takes today.
