Cost: $30-$45
CL’s Hal Horowitz Recommends: There just aren’t that many ukulele experts touring out there, but even if there were, Shimabukuro would be one of the best and surely the most eclectic. That’s proven on his latest guest star studded album that finds him pairing up with names as diverse in age and style as Warren Haynes, Ziggy Marley, Billy Strings, Bette Midler and Willie Nelson as he winds through easy listening jazz, pop, folk, country, reggae and sure, even a little blues. — HH

From the venue:

Over the past two decades, Jake Shimabukuro has proved that there isn’t a style of music that he can’t play. While versatility for any musician is impressive, what’s remarkable about Shimabukuro’s transcendent skills is how he explores his seemingly limitless vocabulary – whether it’s jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass, folk or even classical – on perhaps the unlikeliest of instruments: the ‘ukulele. Responding to the urgent calls of his fervent imagination, the Hawai’i-born virtuoso has taken the ‘ukulele to points previously thought impossible, and in the process he’s reinvented the applications for this tiny, heretofore underappreciated four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ‘ukulele.”
