CHITHALEN, F. Joseph – November 17, 1967 – May 1, 1999 “Love is a renewable resource, we need to keep making love. We need to infuse love to our arms like a global intravenous and turn ourselves around spinning and laughing until we die. And why should death be feared? Death is not an end, but a beginning.” Thanks for sharing in the inspired dream of the Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library which continues to make positive changes in this community and others.

In advance of his performance at the Grand Theatre, Jake Shimabukuro is offering a free ukulele master class at 1 pm in the Tett’s Malting Tower. Bring your ukulele and prepare to be inspired!
Known for his fast and complex finger work and lauded as a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro is redefining the instrument. With accolades from the disparate likes of Eddie Vedder, Perez Hilton, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, it is no surprise that Shimabukuro wows television audiences, earns comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, and has played in front of Queen Elizabeth II.
Internationally known for the YouTube video of his rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” which went viral in 2006, the Hawaiian musician’s 2011 album, Peace Love Ukelele, reached #1 on Billboard’s Top World Albums in both 2011 and 2012. His latest album, Grand Ukelele, is a collaboration with legendary producer Alan Parsons, best known for his work on Pink Floy’d Dark Side of the Moon, The Beatles’ Abbey Road, and his own highly successful solo project.
This is a free event, donations to support Joe’s M.I.L.L. will be gratefully accepted at the door.
“Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with.” – Eddie Vedder
