[Acoustic Fingerstyle]
Jake Shimabukuro at the Fitzgerald

Ukulele (say ooo-koo-lay-lay) has not been the same since Jake showed what could really be done with it. From classical to pop, Shimabukuro shows what a true virtuoso can do with this instrument. At the Fitzgerald Theater, St. Paul.

[Open Stage - Open Mic]
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Minnesota Guitar Society Open Stage

This season we return to an instrumental-only format with a classical and finger-style focus. We’re turning off the vocal mic and won’t be patching in electric guitars this year. All abilities welcome to play, or just to listen. At The Underground Music Cafe, 1579 Hamline Ave., Falcon Heights.

We round out with consort music by William Lawes and a schtickle of lute solos by the Nicolas Vallet. At Emmanuel Luthern Church, 104 Snelling Ave S, St. Paul.
