Come join us in Midland!
It's going to be an amazing weekend of ukulele fun on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay. It's just a lovely 5 hour drive from Ottawa across some of the prettiest countryside.
Mark and I have been asked to head up the late night jam sessions on Friday and Saturday night at the Super 8 hotel, one of the three festival hotels. Our room is booked and it's gonna be one heck of a pyjama party!
There will be two concerts, workshops, lots of jamming, and lunch and dinner on Saturday! There's even a ukulele boat cruise on beautiful Georgian Bay that you can sign up for!
J. Chalmers DOANE is going to be there!! WOWZER! How cool is that!! He will be conducting workshops and performing in the Saturday night All Star Concert along with James Hill and Anne Janelle - incredible musicians fusing uke, cello, and wonderful vocals. Toronto's Eve Goldberg and Broadway Music's Heather Katz will also be conducting workshops!
