On July 18th, 2015 I was able to attend the 4th Annual Utah Uke Fest in American Fork Utah. Well, we will get to that a little later. Two days before that I was on live morning TV to promote the Uke Fest.
Here is the video of the segment I was on:
Ok, back the real Fest. It was a full day of fun. The morning had a workshops taught by M. Ryan Taylor (the founder of the Fest) and the headliner of this year’s festival Danielle Ate the Sandwich.
After the lunchtime open mic contest (I was a judge again this year), it was time for my 2 hour workshop. During this time, we assembled my travel uke kits. The workshop was limited to 5 people, and it sold out quickly weeks before the festival.
Completed travel ukulele ready for strings.
A whole of completed travel ukuleles (including my demo model).
A happy bunch of fellows.

It was another great Utah Uke Fest. I’m looking forward to next year!
