Amy Kucharik - Ukulele-Slinging Singer-Songwriter from Somerville, MA USA

Published: Jul 13, 2021

Added Amy Kucharik => to the Ukulele Musicians and Ukulele Teachers pages.

Amy Kucharik is a ukulele-slinging singer-songwriter based in Somerville, MA USA. The 2015 Kerrville Grassy Hill New Folk winner explores the full range of her instrument's capabilities as a tool to convey a complex array of subjects and moods: Whether humorous, topical, or intense, Amy steers listeners away from perceiving the ukulele as a twee novelty. At the same time, Amy wants her audience to have a good time, and her performances are infused with Vaudevillian charm and an infectious, danceable swing. Her music draws from a range of influences including blues, ragtime jazz, folk, pop and country, as well as aesthetics garnered from film and literature. Amy's catchy, sometimes haunting songs recount tales of reluctant love, revenge, grit, and the challenge of self-expression in a tumultuous political age.

2021 and Beyond Ukulele Festival Dates

Published: Jun 4, 2021

Getting around to updating the Ukulele Festivals listings for 2021 and beyond dates.

Several countries seem to be getting a handle on the COVID-19 2020 global pandemic. Ukulele festivals that were derailed in 2020 and early 2021 are now coming back either LIVE or “virtual”. Some are even doing both.

So, if you know of a festival that needs its Festival Listing ⇒? updating let me know.

I visit all festival pages and do little of detective work and get information for listings and calendars.

Monthly Subscription Plan Is Back

Published: May 27, 2021

I've have brought back the Monthly Subscription Plan for $9 a month with the Annual Subscription Plan still $81 with three months free.

Or, you if you are not a fan of subscriptions, you can just pay once at $149. Get this price before it goes up this Fall 2021 to $179 or so. That's not much more than several months of private lessons with a teacher, You get a lifetime of information I, Curt have made available.

With anyone of the Subscriptions you get all my books, almost 50 of them as FREE downloads. As well as my Premium Play-along Tracks. These tracks are one of a kind that I along with Chuck Anderson recorded many years ago so I could perform using them. Didn't do much of that so I'm making them available for free as part of a site subscription. I know of a few artist that have actually used them to perform against.

No Tricks • No Secrets • No Shortcuts • Nothing for Dummies — and you're NOT going to learn the ukulele in 7 days or 30 days or even master it in your lifetime. You just enjoy the ride, explore, and have a lifetime of fun! And, you can see it all before you sign-up. No teasers.

And as Glen Hirabayashi has told me every time I mention I need to say. “ — the most comprehensive ukulele site in the world.” He might just be right.

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
