Events and Festivals
SPRUKE ukulele festival
(13th-15th September, SunPac Brisbane, QLD)
Ian will be delivering a workshop on strumming the Jake Shimabukuro way, as well as a performance from the OUTLAWS Big Ukulele Band. The repertoire for the Band is always exciting to play and a treat to hear.. below is an example from Blue Mountains recently.. the version we are performing at SPRUKE is even better!
I will also try to perform at some of the open mics, possibly with a couple of my students… guys?
Strings Attached festival
(11th-13th October, Margaret River, WA)
Scott Wise is the patron of this ‘Luthier’ festival. As the name suggests all things stringed includes guitars and mandolins, dulcimers, ukuleles. Ian will be leading two workshops, one using some of James Hill’s techniques found in his Booster Uke book
TBC, but hopefully the Willoughby Ukestars will perform again in Chatswood Mall and at Carols in Willoughby Park.
