YUM! FAMILY SERIES PROGRAM PRESENTS UKULELE SENSATION JAKE SHIMABUKURO AT LOUISVILLE'S BROWN THEATRE
Yum! Family Series Program
Friday, November 22, 8 p.m.
Brown Theatre on Broadway
In his young career, ukulele wizard JAKE SHIMABUKURO has already redefined an under-the-radar instrument, earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, been declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, won accolades from Pearl Jam front man (and ukulele player) Eddie Vedder, wowed television audiences on “Jimmy Kimmel” and “The Today Show,” and performed for the Queen of England.
A Hawaiian native, Shimabukuro just released Grand Ukelele, an ambitious follow-up to 2011’s Peace, Love, Ukulele (which debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Charts). The new record finds him collaborating with legendary producer/engineer Alan Parsons, best known for his work on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, The Beatles’ Abbey Road and his own highly successful solo project.
