Tuned in for ukulele fest
THE Ukorama Festival that attracted more than 400 ukulele enthusiasts last year will return to Mindarie this weekend.
Organiser Gail Harris said the festival committee aimed to bring together ukulele groups from across WA at the third annual event on March 10.
Mrs Harris said the festival showcased the talents of independent amateur ukulele groups and brought them together to socialise and build connections.
“The common goal of performing in front of an audience at the ukulele festival will stimulate interest within the independent groups while having the effect of broadening the influence of the festival,” she said.
“These musical performances at the festival will
most likely encourage some members of the audience to play music and perhaps join some of these ukulele groups.
“We conduct the festival as a not-for-profit event keeping the costs low so the event is affordable to everyone.
“All ukulele enthusiasts are welcome to bring their ukes and join in lots of sing or strum-along fun.”
