Centrum: Port Townsend Ukulele Festival
Wednesday, September 27, 2017

The Port Townsend Ukulele Festival and Workshop is held at Fort Worden State Park, a venue unparalleled in beauty and facility. Expect four nights and three days of intense fun, ukulele instruction, and merry music making with some of the finest ukulele instructors and players working today.

Registration will be limited to 135 people, ensuring small classes and an intimate atmosphere. The workshop offerings will feature a wide variety of styles – jazz, blues, swing, Hawaiian, pop, novelty, and jugband ukulele, at the least. Specific classes will include chords, melody, improvisation, playing up the neck, performing tips, and "one-off" workshops during the Serendipity Hour. Final detailed class descriptions will be posted on the class description page. The evenings feature plenty of faculty-led jams, a highlight for many.

Now in its 5th season, the Port Townsend Ukulele Festival continues to draw a diverse, multi-generational community of enthusiastic beginner, intermediate and advanced ukulele players. At the end of the week, the amazing artist faculty gathers for a series of public concerts to showcase the wonderful ukulele.

We’ll post information on the 2017 performances once we assemble them.
