What About the 2020 Funky Frets Uke Fest
Based on the recommendations of health experts in the news and on-line. Most festivals scheduled for Summer and Fall are going ahead as planned. We are closely monitoring the situation, and the festival is still going forward. Hopefully, by then, it will be a time for celebration and reflection on how well humanity came together, put aside divisions, and we reflect on how we all came together and slowed the progress of the world threatening virus.
In the case (hope not), that we have to cancel the 2020 festival. ALL 2020 tickets will be good for 2021 and you get an ever better deal as we will be raising the 2021 festival ticket price. A festivl is not an in-enxpensive hing to host and put on.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the best — Glen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
