A few members of the AV Uke Fest team spent the day at the amazing Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival they said it was not to be missed!

If you missed it, you have another chance to catch Craig Chee, Sarah Maisel, Heidi Swedberg and Daniel Ward at AV Uke Fest this Saturday!

It was great to return to the 2019 Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival with Sarah Maisel! So many improvements and what a great time to be had. Even with all the running around I managed to get a few photos (not as many as I would have liked!). Wish it was longer to catch up with friends that we haven't seen in forever! Many thanks to Mitch Chang and all of the festival sponsors and volunteers!! Thank you to all of our workshop attendees, we had a blast... it was also great to see so many of our online ArtistWorks students! Keep strumming!!!

So many great performances and incredible workshops. Daniel Ward and Heidi Swedberg’s performance was amazing, the instrumental arrangements, the vocals and their stage presence made for very entertaining show.
The festival is a great addition to the AV Culture. It's wonderful for our Kids too. AV Nice can't attend this year I'm hosting a high school class reunion same weekend, best wishes. Spread the AVAloha Spirit
As a past resident and lifelong fan of Lancaster, I send good wishes for a great ukulele festival. I will be at a pickers circle in Denver tonight and will strum a few in your honor. I hope to be with you next year. Uke on.
Come and join us for the festivities.
