Old Town New Folk Music Series: Jake Shimabukuro

When: April 18 - April 19, 2023

Where: The Studios of Key West, 533 Eaton St, Key West, FL 33040

Over the past two decades, Jake Shimabukuro has proved that there isn't a style of music that he can't play. While versatility for any musician is impressive, what's remarkable about Shimabukuro'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 intruments: the 'ukulele. Responding to the urgent calls of his fervent imagination, the Hawai'i-born virtuoso has taken the 'ukulele to points previously thought impossible, and in the process he's reinvented the applications for this tiny, heretofore under-appreciated four-string instrument, causing many to call him "the Jimi Hendrix of the 'ukulele." $100 front row. $60 general admission. $50 for members (discounted price will display upon member login). Old Town New Folk made possible by Nick and Lorie Howley, John and Marilyn Rintamaki, and Nell Smets. Series sponsored by Blue Heaven. Concert sponsored by Key West Fine Wines.
