WVPE invites you to see musician Jake Shimabukuro at 7:30pm on Friday, August 23rd at The Lerner Theatre in downtown Elkhart.
You may have heard one of Jake's past interviews on NPR about his ability to play the ukelele.
Nearly 15 years ago, Jake’s rendition of My Guitar Gently Weeps performed on the ukulele went viral on Youtube.
As a youngster growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii, Shimabukuro started playing the instrument at the age of four, learning the basics from his mother, Carol. As he matured, Shimabukuro also found inspiration from guitar players, drummers, pianists, and singers. Even athletes helped fuel the intensity of his artistry.
His show Friday, August 23rd at the Lerner starts at 7:30. Doors open at 6:30.
