Master of the ukulele, his rock and pop performances have become one of the hottest tickets around. Jake Shimabukuro captured colors and moods never associated with the ukulele before with his deeply beautiful and original take on George Harrison's ballad "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." In 2006 his video went viral and a star was born. Since then he has performed around the world, bringing the power of this instrument to legions of new ukulele fans. His latest record, "The Greatest Day," features some of Shimabukuro's most imaginative and adventuresome playing yet, this time with two guitarists. Now you can see this musical marvel perform a collection of original compositions and transcendent covers live at Yardley Hall.
