An Evening With Jake Shimabukuro
Hawaiian-born Jake Shimabukuro started playing the ukulele when he was four years old and learned the basics from his mother. Today, he’s become an international sensation known for reinventing the four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.”
Since being discovered on YouTube in 2005, Shimabukuro has challenged and changed all notions of what is possible with a Ukulele. His albums Gently Weeps, Peace Love Ukulele and Grand Ukulele have topped the Billboard World Music Charts, earning him headline tours around the world, performances at notable venues like the Lincoln Center and the Sydney Opera House, and audiences that include none other than Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
With his latest album Trio, the Ukulele virtuoso begins a bold and exciting new chapter in his already remarkable career.
