The 6th annual Sunshine Coast Ukulele Festival (11-14 April 2019) is set to bring a ukulele feast to the Kenilworth Showgrounds in the beautiful Mary Valley town of Kenilworth, Queensland.
International, interstate and local artists will perform and teach their own unique styles of fabulous music and songs, all on the little ukulele, now the most played instrument world-wide.
Brisbane performers and workshop presenters feature greatly in the program — Vic Kena, The CAGE, Free Range chUKES, Hint of Rosemary, Kine Kool, BFG, Hypnotonics, Duke Ukem, Ukulele Saints, Mama Juju and the Jam Tarts, Miss Elm and Donna & Derek Farrell.
There’ll be lots of great workshops to suit all standards of ukulele playing, and workshops on singing, dancing and drumming.
This year’s special event is the Mary Valley Rattler train ride to Gympie and back, playing ukuleles and singing all the way. There’s great anticipation and
excitement for everyone going on this trip. Other activities include the annual songwriting competition, open mic sessions at the Kenilworth Hotel and spontaneous jam sessions popping up all over the place.
The joy of singing and playing ukulele in groups of like-minded people of all ages, race & gender is incomparable. It brings people together for the love of making music and singing like nothing else does. Everyone is welcome to come along. Bring your tent or caravan, or come for a day trip.
