This July, we will be welcoming world-renowned ukulele masters, Kimo Hussey and Zanuck Lindsey, from Hawaii. They will be having a BC Tour of concerts and workshops entitled, “It’s All About Ukulele,” which will include rare duet ukulele performances. The ukulele workshops will be co-taught by Kimo and Zanuck who have years of teaching experience. Be sure to take this opportunity to learn from two experts under one roof! A discounted price of $35 is offered to all registering in both the concert ($20) and the workshop ($20). This tour is sponsored by Arbutus Music in Nanaimo and the Cutie Circle.
Kimo Hussey is a much-sought after performer and teacher, traveling extensively to ukulele festivals and workshops around the world. He has recorded two solo ukulele CDs, “Eminent Ukulele” and “Low G” (from iTunes), and has participated in several other composite ukulele CDs (including Legends of the Ukulele, Island Style Ukulele 2) . He is an author of the multiple award-winning Hawaiian songbook,”He Mele Aloha” which has sold millions of copies around the world and has been translated into other languages. He will be presenting a five-day “Ukulele Forever” workshop at Hollyhock on Cortes Island this July.
