Overview

Overview Charm City Ukulele Festival

A night featuring Victoria Vox, The Sweater Set, The Baltimore Ukulele Symphonette, Moe Nelson, Don Kim, Glen Hirabayashi, Jon Braman, Bob Friedman and your host Don Peyton!

Charm City celebrates that most charming of instruments – the mighty uke! Born in Hawaii of Portuguese roots in the 1880s, a star of the Jazz Age, a staple of the Canadian music education system, the uke lost steam post Tiny Tim only to rise again in the early '90s. Tonight we gather an amazing cast of uke players exploring the unpretentious little instrument’s full range – from the Hawaiian tunes to country, '20s era jazz, Tin Pan Alley and vaudeville, and the myriad of forms it take today. With pop darling Victoria Vox; the faux sister, sweet camp duo of The Sweater Set; Hula Monster and Hawaii aficionado Moe Nelson; O’ahu’s own Glen Hirabayashi of The Aloha Boys; Jared Denhard & Richard McCredy of The Baltimore Ukulele Symphonette; Bob Friedman of Mambo Combo; Jon Braman, Don Kim, and your suave musical host Don Peyton. An eclectic, festive evening with short performances celebrating the wondrous versatility and humor of this joyous little instrument. 7:30pm | $20, $17 mbrs & stus.
