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 bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
