Point your GPS devices for Nashville--Indiana, that is, for May 30 and 31, 2008 for The Ukulele Luau, brought to you by Bushman Ukulele. Workshops, performances, and an all-you-can-eat barbecue.
Of note, one of the featured performers is Julia Nunes, winner of last year's Bushman World Ukulele Video Contest for her version of Destiny's Child's Survivor. Julia (do you suppose she's any relation to Manuel?) Nunes has an impressive YouTube following, which is not surprising. She has the most wonderful smile of any uke player I have ever seen, and the unbridled glee with which she puts together her videos is completely infectious. We are smitten.
