Whether you play ukulele or you just enjoy its simple, beachy sound, the Blackwater Ukulele Festival has something for everyone.
There will be three workshops: one for beginner ukulele players, another for advanced players, and one for novice dulcimer players — all offering ample time to meet, mingle and jam.
The concert portion features Dave “Ukulele Dave” Brown, Nathan Miller, The Charleston Hot Shots, Sarah Summer and a finale by The V-Tones of Charleston, with special guest Big Jim Allen. Afterwards, there is an open mic portion for attendees to show off their chops.
