Connecticut Ukulele Festival Events

The Connecticut Ukulele Festival was created by ukulele enthusiasts who recognized the bottomless desire by the Uke community to meet, learn, strum, sing and enjoy all things Ukulele. Our September 29 event is our “beta.” Our goal is to learn how to throw the best possible Uke festival and to develop long relationships with our attendees.

Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz - Hidden Valley Music Seminars Center in Carmel Valley

BurningUke

Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz - Burning Uke Events

Because of serious problems with our reservations at Little Basin, we are moving this year’s “Burning Uke” to a new venue: The Hidden Valley Music Seminars Center, located in the heart of beautiful Carmel Valley. It’s the same place that’s been our happy home for Smoldering Uke these past few years. We chose Hidden Valley because it’s a well-run facility with a friendly staff that provides us with a very comfortable place to stay, eat and play. Although it’s a slightly longer drive for most of us who live in the city of Santa Cruz, it’s a pleasant drive—and there are no windy mountain roads full of pot holes to navigate.

Mark ‘Spanky’ Gutierrez says... Why you ask? As a very famous rodent once said “because we love you”! I was privy to some great ‘ukulele festivals in the early 2000’s. During that time I met some uke players that were not only great players but they were also great teachers! They had a passion for playing, teaching and they are great people too! I have said it before and I will say it again “uke people are the most open sharing folks you will ever meet. Those early festivals revived a life long passion in me that drove me back to college to get a Music Degree at UNO. I have always felt like I some how owed the ‘ukulele community something back... well here we are!

The price for Unlimited Forever access is right around the cost of a few months of private lessons. I can guarantee there is more than enough material on-line to keep you busy for a long, long time. And, you get all of my books for FREE. That alone is more than the cost of this plan.

NOTE: Each higher access level includes ALL the benefits of the lower levels. Private Lessons include all the benefits of a Premium Access Plans as long as you remain a student on the schedule.


Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
