"Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can't see anybody else catching up with." Eddie Vedder
In his still young career, ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro has been the leader in the movement to bring the ukulele to mainstream consciousness. He has been declared a musical "hero" by Rolling Stone, wowed audiences on TV (Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Conan), and has earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. Jake's repertoire includes jazz, blues, rock, bluegrass, classical, and folk in short, there isn't anything he can't play on the ukulele!
Jake's performance will be kicking off the 20th annual Chico World Music Festival. Be sure to Join Chico Performances at the Chico World Music Festival on Saturday, September 14 for a full day of free music on 4 stages, artisans, crafts, games and more.
