Del Rey is back after in Boyertown with a great concert and workshop.
Del Rey started playing guitar when she was four years old. At thirteen, she was immersed in the world of folk music, via the San Diego Folk Festival. She has tried to get a whole band onto her solo instrument from the beginning. This gives her music an interesting complexity, especially when applied to the ukulele.

Level: know your first position chords and be able to keep time while changing them. Jugband blues ensemble, with parts for strummers, pickers and singers.
