Lil' Rev Ukulele Workshop
Location: Portside, Kimball Hall
MACHIAS, Maine – During the month of November, the University of Maine at Machias will present Off the Edge of the Sea, a series of concerts and learning engagements in the performing arts that will feature a diverse line up of local and national musicians.
On Friday, November 16, the series will present “Roots Ukulele with Lil’ Rev” at 7 p.m. Lil’ Rev is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and music-historian. He currently writes instructional books for Hal Leonard Publishing, presents clinics all over the U.S., and tours internationally as a performer of time honored classics and original songs. Lil’ Rev was inducted into the Traditional Old-Time Country Music Hall of Fame in 2003.
Lil’ Rev will also present a workshop earlier in the day at noon titled, “Essential Strums, Strokes, and Tricks for Ukulele.” The class is open to all levels and is a virtual smorgasbord of tools for the ukulele player to use for improving his or her skills.
The concert will take place in Portside, Kimball Hall. Performance tickets are $10 each, $15 for a couple, free for UMM students, and $3 for non-UMM students. Workshops and lectures are free admission. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance by calling 255-1370.
