The Nukes from New Zealand are one of the featured acts at Kenilworth’s Ukulele Festival
Sunshine Coast Ukulele Festival will be holding their fifth annual ukulele festival in the beautiful Mary Valley town of Kenilworth from April 19-22. This year’s festival, titled Ukulele Fiesta, will be just that, a fabulous, colourful, festive event with artists from Italy, New Zealand and from all around Australia.
Performing at Ukulele Fiesta will be the fantastico three-piece band from Italy, Ukus In Fabula; the well-known multi-talented and multi-instrumentalist, Nicky Bomba; The Nukes from New Zealand; Sunshine Coast’s own hard working band, Pineapple Crush; gorgeous and totally fabulous The Loveys, and many more.
There will be heaps of great workshops to suit all standards of ukulele playing, plus workshops on singing and harmony, drumming, and learning to dance the Samba.
There’ll be plenty of merchandise to buy including music books, CDs and new ukuleles (because we can never have enough ukuleles!), our annual songwriting competition with great prizes, our own special UkeWiz and jamming around the campfire with friends.
The joy of playing the little ukulele and singing along in a big group of like- minded people of all ages, race and gender is incomparable. It brings everyone together for the love of making music and singing like nothing else does.
Everyone’s welcome to come along. Bring your tent or caravan or just come for a day.
