    Default 2011 Wine Country 'Ukulele Festival

    We're on for the fourth, annnaul Wine Country 'Ukulele Festival, September 9 - 11, in the beautiful Napa Valley.

    James Hilll & Friends (Anne Davison, Aaron Keim, Gerald Ross, and Lil' Rev) will kick things off with a concert at the Napa Valley Opera House on Friday night. (Tickets will be available through the Opera House.)

    Saturday and Sunday we're at the Upper Valley Campus of Napa Valley College in St. Helena for free music, workshops, and an 'ukulele marketplace from 10 - 5.

    Instructors include James Hill, Aaron Keim, Gerald Ross, Lil Rev, Ken Middleton, Mandolyn May, Andy Andrews, Faith Ako, Steve Espaniola, Jim D'Ville, Dave Egan, Brook Adams, and more!

    The festival ends with a no-cover, no-host, post-festival jam and open mic at Gott's Roadside (aka Taylor's Refresher) in St. Helena, from 6 - ?????

    Free admission (except for the workshops), but a $15 wristband gets you preferred seating at the festival concert, and 3 raffle tickets.

    Workshop registration has just opened. Enrollment is limited, so please register early.

    Hope to see you there!

    You've listed James Hill as one of the instructors, but your web site doesn't show him or his classes (http://winecountryukefest.com/instructors/). Do you have any updates on this? Thanks,

    Same question here. I was planning to register this week, but if James Hill is going to be there again this year I'd like to be able to sign up for at least one of his workshops. Thanks!

    James Hill will be at the festival and will be doing a workshop called "Very, Very Sad Songs".

    My partner and I will be there. Already made reservations; now if I could get the forms filled out and mailed that would be even better. Hoping for online registration next year: I'm not used to this paper thing!

    Thanks for your patience. We just got this posted:

    Very, Very Sad Songs
    Do you find yourself whistling “You are My Sunshine” as you stroll down congested city streets in the middle of rush hour? When that red, red, robin just keeps on bobbin’, do you feel the urge to pull out your ukulele and join him? Do you sing in the rain? The long-term effects of playing too many happy ukulele songs are anybody’s guess. So here’s an opportunity to get a grip, stay balanced, and put a little melancholy in your step with this soul-crushing repertoire class: Very, Very Sad Songs. Hand-outs will be provided, but you’ll need to bring your own tissues. (Level 2-4)

    It'll be held Saturday, Sept. 10 at 11:45 am
