A North Shore Center favorite, Jake Shimabukuro is the world’s most recognized master of the ukulele, taking the instrument to places no one has gone before by performing awe-inspiring music that ranges from jazz, blues and rock to bluegrass, classical and folk.
Every major artist has that one defining album or performance, but for ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro, his entire career has been filled with such magical achievements. Since he first came to the world’s attention with his deeply beautiful and original take on George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in a viral video that dominated YouTube in 2005, the Hawaiian-born Shimabukuro has virtually reinvented the four-string instrument, inspiring many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.”
