UkeFest Virginia - This Weekend! (Nov. 1 and 2, 2013)

This weekend is the 2nd annual UkeFest Virginia - a festival in Richmond, VA celebrating the ukulele.  It takes place November 1st and 2nd at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen.
There are some interesting looking workshops on the schedule, such as “Early Jazz/Ragtime for Uke”, being taught by members of the Bumper Jacksons, and “Kentucky Old Time Style Uke” – also by the Bumper Jacksons, as well as “Advanced Chords for Uke” and “Arranging Music for the Uke”, both of which are being taught by Josh Kekoa.  Workshop tickets are only $15 each.

There will also be concerts throughout the weekend featuring the aforementioned Bumper Jacksons and Josh Kekoa.  The Aloha Boys, Jim and Liz Beloff, Ken Middleton, and local duo Sweet Fern will also perform.  In addition, UkeFest participants will have plenty of opportunities to jam!  What a great way to gain musical knowledge and inspiration, and meet other ukulele aficionados.
