Well, we only have four days to go before the festivities begin. We are so excited to bring Vancouver Island ukesters another fantastic festival full of fun, frivolity and ukulele fever this coming weekend at the Nanaimo Ukulele Festival.
Bringing you Cynthia Kinnunen from Guelph, Ontario, a highly skilled and masterful teacher of the ukulele. There are still a few spots open in her Ookestra workshop so it’s not to late to join in on a fantastic and fun festival experience.
Words from one of Cynthia’s students: “Right from the first lesson, Cynthia taught me a lot, from strumming techniques, to tricks of the instrument. Cynthia is a fantastic teacher, and she brings such a passion for music to her teaching. When she plays, you can tell that Cynthia loves what she does, and that is crucial in a teacher. If you’re young and just starting out in the music world, or if you have a few years in your sails and want to bring a little uke into your life, I recommend contacting Cynthia. I can’t wait until my next lesson!” – Emma B.
I can hardly wait to experience the musical talent and ability of the boys in the Naked Waiters group. They characterize themselves with their “impressive ukulele playing, nice hair and handsome harmonies that set the mood for any event.” The “Waiters” are also gaining an impressive resume of bookings at international ukulele festivals.
Don’t wait too long to pick up your concert tickets for the Saturday evening performance.
Parksville’s own Revolving Doors along with Mira and Katelynn and local open mic performers will bring local ukulele spirit to finish off the Festival on Sunday afternoon. Lets fill the Neighbourhood Church with great music and a rousing jamboree of ukulele playing and singing like the world is watching. Come on down for a whole lot of fun. Come even if you don’t play the ukulele (yet).
Hope to see you all there. Bring a friend.
