Arts at UNCW

Jake Shimabukuro

Friday, February 11, 2011 at 8 pm, Kenan Auditorium

Jake Shimabukuro's extraordinary facility is mesmerizing at any speed. Renowned for lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques, Jake views the ukulele as an untapped source of music with unlimited potential. Playing jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco and rock, Jake's mission is to show everyone that the ukulele is capable of so much more than only the traditional Hawaiian music many associate with it.

Every so often a musician comes along who completely re-imagines the possibilities of a given instrument...Shimabukuro delivers a listening experience that both delights and surprises. - All Music Guide
