Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre

Widely recognized as “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele,” Jake Shimabukuro is a one-man army advancing the ukulele cause, turning the four-string axe into a flexible musical vehicle capable of generating everything from crunching, effects-laden rock to sensuously swinging jazz. He coaxes an impossibly big sound out of this little instrument, playing an intoxicating mix of pop tunes, Great American Songbook standards, and lilting originals. 

“He pulled sounds from that tiny device made of wood and nylon strings that defy science and reality, sounds that Eric Clapton would envy.” – The Plain Dealer
