JAKE SHIMABUKURO, ukulele
Honolulu’s Jake Shimabukuro has elevated the ukulele from a beloved Hawaiian folk instrument to a world-class tool, fearlessly traversing boundaries and putting his inspired touch on everything from Island standards to popular tunes and, most recently, classical symphonic concertos. This solo concert brings him to Provo for the first time with an adventurous and engaging program of signature tunes and new compositions.
+“Shimabukuro has elevated this simple four-string, two-octave instrument to a classical art form. . . . He produces string sounds resembling an acoustic tenor guitar that mix flamenco, classical, blues, and acoustic rock fingerstyling.” —GratefulWeb.com
