Ukulele? Yes! 

Ukes up the wazoo in town—starting Saturday


Saturday, January 28 will be hereby known as the Night of the Ukes III. 1313 Hollis fills with little bitsy ukes and the sweet South Sea sound they make from 7:30pm on ($10 at the door).

The uke-loving gang proclaims: "Night of the Uke III features jazz, surf, blues and who knows what else from 4 of the Maritimes' uke-obsessed musicians. You won't believe your ears, or eyes for that matter."

Featuring the Urban Surf Kings' Rev Hank playing surf and jazz uke hits off his debut album Ukulele Surf King; Manitoba Hal, the legendary prairie ukulele bluesman, now based in Shelburne; Nigel D'eon and Crash Flagg, the only ukulele bass player east of Montreal.

So after Saturday, you've had a taste and crave more! more! more! ukulele magic. The Dartmouth Community Concert Association presents the third concert in their 2011-12 season with James Hill (ukulele) and Anne Davison (cello) (on Friday, February 17, 8pm. at Woodlawn United Church. $25/$20/$10). Fun fact: Hill co-authored the Ukulele in the Classroom series with J. Chalmers Doane and edits the iconic Ukulele Yes! quarterly.
