DOVER —The Southern NH Ukulele Group will host its seventh annual winter ukulele festival on Sat., February 2 at the Historic STRAND Theater in Dover. Starting at 2:00 p.m. the day's festivities will feature wildly talented ukulele groups from near and far, including: The Silvertones, The Ukulele Strummers of Southern Maine, The Flukes, Steve Roy, and more!
The ukulele is a simple, four-stringed instrument. Easy to learn, easy to play, it produces sweet, resonant tones, and gives everyone an opportunity to let their souls sing! Along with performances there'll be food, raffles, sing-alongs and play-alongs.
Tickets are at Brown Paper Tickets: https://snhugluau7.brownpapertickets.com/, and a few sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Proceeds from SNHUG's Groundhog Day Luau will go to benefit the Ukulele Kids Club, a US non-profit dedicated to bringing the healing gift of music to hospitalized children. Founded in 2014 by Corey and Edda Bergman, the UKC operates in over 200 hospitals and has donated more than 6500 ukuleles. Kids and their families in difficult situations really benefit from the simple, therapeutic effect of music. Learn more about the UKC's mission at https://theukc.org.
