April

Del Rey

Sunday, April 14, 2019 - Workshop and Concert with Del Rey

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.

Workshop: Ukulele Blues Party Concert: 3:30PM ( will be the afternoon, preceded by the workshop 2pm to 3pm )

Ukulele Blues Party

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.

We’ll work on rhythm, playing the melody and playing together as a group. By ear, no TAB.

If you attend Del's 2018 Funky Frets Uke Fest workshop she does a different song each time she does the wordksop.

Show Description:

Magnolia Dupre has honored her father’s dying wish and made absolutely certain that the annual VooDoo Ball goes on as planned. As the captain of the Krewe of Momus, Everett Dupre took great pride in this masquerade event and wanted to ensure it lived beyond him, and Magnolia is committed to realizing his dream – or at least until she gets her inheritance. But when her estranged brother shows up with his “from the wrong side of the tracks” fiancé tempers flare. Will there be a Murder at Mardi Gras?
