10th Annual Reno 'Ukulele Festival
This year’s lineup is our biggest ever! Five (or six, shhh…) married uke couples will assist in celebrating our tenth anniversary (as well as Melinda and my 40th!). Nearly everyone has been a headliner in their career, so I’ll start with those traveling the farthest, Jim & Liz Beloff, who are making their first appearance at a Play Uke Festival. Jim of course, is one of the pioneers of the latest and greatest ukulele resurgence and I’m thrilled to finally get them out west.
Sarah Maisel & Craig Chee, Victoria Vox & Jack Maher, Victor & Penny (aka Jeff Freling & Erin McGrane), Aaron & Nicole Keim, (aka The Quiet American) round out the couples.
Grammy Award winner Daniel Ho leads the solo performers, (although none of the “solos” will likely be performing alone). Peter Luongo, featured prominently in “The Mighty Uke” as Director of the Langley Ukulele Ensemble, and the most experienced uke instructor on the planet, will teach and lead his Luongo Ukulele Ensemble. Multi-instrumentalist par-excellence, Abe Lagrimas, Jr. and my good friend, jazz master Michael Powers’ will be teaching and performing as well. What a lineup!
