Jake Shimabukuro at UMass Dartmouth
October 5 @ 8:00 pm$39 – $49
Over the past two decades, Jake Shimabukuro has demonstrated that there isn’t a style of music he can’t play. While versatility for any musician is impressive, what’s remarkable about Jake’s transcendent skills is how he explores his seemingly limitless vocabulary – whether it’s jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass, folk, or even classical – on perhaps the unlikeliest of instruments: the ukulele. He has taken the instrument to points previously thought impossible. He’s reinvented the applications for this tiny, underappreciated four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.”
We’re on the road while the Zeiterion undergoes a major renovation and restoration. This performance will be at UMass Dartmouth, Main Auditorium.
