Ukulele Virtuoso Coming to the Vancouver International Children's Festival

Ukulele wunderkind James Hill & cellist Anne Janelle will play at Kidsfest next week

At the recommendation of my ukulele-playing cousin Paul, I booked Sprout & I tickets to see James Hill at the Vancouver International Children's Festival next week. Sprout likes ukuleles (he has two of his own, actually) & I'm looking forward to seeing an artist who's not specifically a children's performer.

There are still some tickets left if you want to come see him too--he's playing several times during the festival next week. More info & tickets here on the Kidsfest site.

A little more about James Hill:

Barely in his 30s, ukulele master James Hill has four genre-bending albums to his name and a fan-base that spans the globe. The Honolulu Star-Bulletin calls him a “rare peer” of Hawaii’s premier ukulele players. His inventiveness and passion for sharing music through this fun, kid-sized instrument makes him an instant hit for all ages. Accompanied by Anne Janelle on cello, this pioneer of “ukulele in the classroom” will delight and surprise!

For even more info about James Hill, & to listen to some of his music, visit his website.
