Funky Frets Uke Fest - News

The 2022 Funky Frets Uke Fest was a blast and thanks to all that attended. Send any links to photos and we'll run them on our Wednesday night Funky Frets TV Show.

October 7-8-9, 2022

NOTE: If you have a 2020 or 2021 (live, not the 2020 virtual ticket) festival ticket, it is good for 2022 Funky Frets Uke Fest without the price increase that is required for 2022. You can request a refund until the end of June 2022.

Funky Frets Uke Fest

The Funky Frets Uke Frets keeps getting better and better every year.

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. 2019 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.

2021 is a Roaring 20s theme, even when the first year of 2020 was not such a roaring year. Hopefully 2022 will finally bring in the Roaring 20s we've all be hoping for.

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 bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
