Not just a concert. Not just a workshop.
It’s a full arvo at the Gallipoli Legion Club with James Hill!
A very special and unique workshop (WORKSHOP NOW SOLD OUT) program followed by his only Australian concert for 2017.
James in mellow-ish/up mode.
He thrilled audiences at the last Newkulele Festival. This time James is solo, a revelatory experience in itself. His ability to make you believe there are more than just him and his ukulele is gobsmacking. No electronic tricks, just skill, mastery, fine singing, great lyrics and wry insightful humour.
” Hill gives the uke its dignity back, without taking himself – or the instrument – too seriously “
The two hour concert begins at 4:30pm, with a short support set from Jack n Jel n Ruth n John. Don’t forget to bring your ukes for a final strumalong.
Workshop – sold out!
As a teacher of ukulele, James is second to none. Clear, smart, precise, informed, funny. Über knowledgeable. His workshops are renowned the world over.
We have devised a very special afternoon of workshops for us all.
When? 1pm – 3:25pm
- James will give a one hour workshop
- A master class where a 2-3 select teachers will teach YOU something and James will critique their teaching
- A master class where WE (as the Ukastle Ukestra) perform two songs (from our recent performance repertoire). James will then critique our performance, arrangement and conducting (look out Jane!).
- A couple of comfort breaks.
NUMBERS ARE LIMITED FOR THE WORKSHOP AND CONCERT. BOOK TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
The 1 hour break in cosmopolitan Hamilton
There will be a one hour break between the workshop and the concert. You could relax downstairs, or head out to a nearby coffee shop, and debrief with your friends about the workshop.
We are upstairs at the Gallipoli Legion Club – right on the latte strip of Beaumont St, Hamilton, 2 doors from Hamilton Railway Station. This is an accessible venue (there is a stair lift).
Have lunch before, have a quick bite to eat between, or have dinner after to reflect on a great afternoon out.
Videos to convince you to come (as if you needed convincing).
But be prepared for this…
