(25 AUG 2021 UPDATE) • the Funky Frets Uke Fest of 2021 slated to take place October 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 2021 has been CANCELLED due to the ongoing safety concerns of the pandemic.
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 happening or 2022. You can also request a refund.
The Funky Frets Crew (Bern, Curt, Kelly, TJ, and Ali) are eagerly awaiting Fall 2022, October 7-8-9, 2022. When we'll hopefully be able to return live and in-person for our Funky Frets Music Store's 10th Anniversary and the Funky Frets 7th Annual Uke Fest. We can finally after trying for the last two years get together again for some ukulele fun. We are sorry to have to cancel again - BUT look forward to getting to see all our ukulele friends face-to-face and actually see their faces.
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
