Ukulele University

Friday, Sep 23: Albuquerque Ukekopelli Festival

Amanda Palmer presented an interesting theory in her song "Ukulele Anthem," that—basically—if everyone in the world played the uke there would be world peace. We all can agree that that's the kind of movement we'd like to see start in Albuquerque, so get your asses to the Albuquerque Ukekopelli Festival sometime between Sept. 23-Sept. 25 for a myriad of concerts, food, workshops and performances. Go online to abqukefest.com for the full schedule of (over 20!) classes, workshops and performances that last throughout the weekend. Performances from ukulele masters Heidi Swedberg, Daniel Ward, John Bartlit, Gerald Ross, Frank Leto and a dance performance fromthe students of the Desert Stars Polynesia Hula dance studio. Aloha!
