Ukulele Russ

Friday 13th Party

Workshop - Northcote Town Hall - 1pm to 2pm

Workshop - 303 - 4pm to 5pm

Ukulele Russ is a wild man - the dirty underbelly of the American ukulele scene.Unable to comprehend how the ukulele could be seen as anything other than stringed testosterone.


Russ set out to expand people’s minds. Believe it or not, ukes can rock. He is playing it fast and loose in a guitarist’s jungle with his one man frontier band and show that contains secret historical tales from the 49th state, and a true account of Russ’s life in the north, telling the stories of a musician’s survival in the subarctic all set to Alaskan ukulele music.
