Four Days of Music & Instruction featuring Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer, Casey MacGill, Gerald Ross, Daniel Ho, Muriel Anderson, John Batdorf, Dani Joy. It's the Reno Ukulele Festival & Acoustic Faire with Swing Thing!
That’s a long name! What does it all mean? After our 10th anniversary bash I wondered where to take the festival to begin it's second decade, so I looked at how the ukulele has evolved as an instrument and in its playing styles. What I realized was this: Many ukulele pros also play other instruments and add techniques from those to their uke skills. In addition, the ukulele itself is now a diverse family of acoustic and electric instruments and it is being played in many different styles.
Acoustic Faire: Because of the diversity of the instrument and blending of playing styles, I decided to infuse our lineup with multi-instrumentalists. In addition to the ukulele, Cathy and Marcy and Casey and Gerald and Daniel all play a number of instruments. I also went outside the world of uke and asked two exceptional, non-uke artists to bring topics and techniques from their world that you can incorporate into your love of uke. You'll be able to learn melody & soundtrack writing from a Hollywood soundtrack composer, new right-hand styles from a harp-guitar virtuoso and first woman ever to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship, and you'll expand your uke's sonic landscapes under the tutelage of a world music trailblazer! The level of talent at this festival is truly off the charts!
Swing Thing: We'll also have a Friday night bash, initially intended as a stand-alone event but now part of the festival. Our Swing Thing will be a combination Swing Dance/Concert for both those who want to get the blood circulating on the dance floor and for those who’d rather just kick back and enjoy a mid-century music blast from the past! Vintage garb highly encouraged! And we’ll also offer swing dance lessons for newbies who want to join in!
* All of the above is included in your Full, 4 Day Festival Pass!
