Ahead of his concert on Friday, August 23 at The Lerner in Elkhart, ukelele master Jake Shimabukuro took some time to talk to WVPE's Michael Linville.  Listen as Jake reflects on how he got interested in the ukelele in his home state of Hawaii and went on to become a YouTube sensation.

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.
