Talking Story – May


One month to go!!!

I announce last week that ROY SAKUMA will be joining us and teaching one of his exclusive workshops, which are so popular in Waikiki and now can be sampled right here in New York. I said last week that this workshop would be offered on Saturday, but when we tried to adjust the schedule to make it happen, this choice was not an option. Roy’s workshop has been scheduled to take place on Friday, May 31 between 4PM and 6PM. Whether you are a beginner of an astute ukulele player, this will be the place to be on Friday, May 31.

This has been a week of meetings and planning to help to put this event together. Maybe you heard us on the radio. Our media person, Maria Coder, has been promoting us through a variety of channels. You might have seen one of the posters or flyers that are being distributed between now and the Fest. Or one of our performers may have contacted you to check this website. However you got here, welcome! You have found your ukulele family. We love new blood. Bring us your latest song, show us your favorite uke arrangement and join us at the 2013 Fest. You will not be sorry.

 On a practical note, we are at the end of our hotel discount period. If you would like to stay at the Park Savoy, which is the official hotel of the Fest and the place where the midnight jams take place, you need to contact Vesna now! ( or 212 245-5755).

We will continue to have additions to the Fest lineup and schedule right up to Fest time, so please keep in touch.  See you soon.
