The Ukulele Scramble at Forbes Library

WHAT: The Ukulele Scramble
WHERE: Forbes Library 40 West st. Northampton, MA.
WHEN: April 22 at 7 PM

Forbes Library is delighted to bring back The Ukulele Scramble on April 22 at 7 PM. The performance is free and welcoming for all.

The Ukulele Scramble are four time Grammy Nominee Richard Perlmutter and Ukulele Instructor and former Metropolitan Opera and Joffrey Ballet Dancer Robin Hoffman. They sing and play songs of the past 500 years - Renaissance and Classical music, 19th Century Parlor and Art Songs, jazz and swing standards, and even some folk music and rock and roll. They update, revise and rewrite lyrics for many of these songs, often humorously, and perform them on their large collection of ukuleles. They are based in Western Massachusetts.
