I attended Utah’s Uke Fest on July 27-28, 2012. This festival had classes and workshops during the day with amazing concerts at night. I learned new things and was inspired to take my playing to the next level. My favorite part of the festival was getting to meet other ukulele enthusiasts from the surrounding area.
On Saturday at noon, there was an open mic contest. The performances were great, with lots of brave people displaying their talents.
Paul “Tommy” O’Connor played a few Celtic tunes on the ukulele at the Saturday evening concert.
Bolo Rodrigues also played on Saturday evening. He attaches a ukulele to the bottom of his guitar and switches back and forth between the two instruments.
Brittni Paiva was the headliner of the festival. Her spectacular performance was a great capstone to a very fun couple of days.
