Ukes are coming to the Folkie

Hot off the press today from the Port Fairy Folk Festival E-News:

As we prepare for the 41st incarnation of this magnificent event we would love to have your input.

A little clue to one feature of next year’s festival is the appearance of virtuosos of the ukulele. From the USA to Ireland, Mullumbimby to Melbourne, uke players will be on fire in 2017… If you own a uke please bring it to the 2017 festival.

If you’re an ideas person we need a collective noun for a mass ukulele ensemble… If your idea gets over the line you will receive a custom made Hawaiian Shirt.

Please email your ideas to
