Coronavirus COVID-19 & 2020 Funky Frets Uke Fest
Based on the recommendations of health experts in the news and on-line most festivals that are scheduled for Summer and Fall are going ahead as planned. We are closely monitoring the situation and the festival is still going ahead. 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 threating virus.
Funky Frets Uke Fest
The Funky Frets Uke Frets keeps getting better and better every year. And 2019 was no exception.
For the same price or less than most festivals your get a historic train ride strum-along, Sunday jam and picnic, catered lunch and dinner Saturday as well as all the standard fest items. This year was a Philadelphia theme and we kicked off Saturday's concert with none other than Philly's own historic ukulele player, "Ben Franklin" (he did play guitar for real) and some Philly Mummers to get the audience strutting their stuff without out having to wait for New Years Day Mummers Parade down Broad St. in Philadelphia. And, a lot better weather.

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
