Ukuleles on Green Island
Tropical Green Island was host to two world-renowned ukulele artist performances and an enthusiastic gathering of the four-stringed instrument’s devotees at Great Adventures ‘ Ukulele Island Gig on Friday 2 July.
The amazing performances by Hawaii-born Jason Arimoto and US artist Matt “Jumping Flea” Dahlberg were part of the inaugural Cairns Ukulele Festival and added an extra special island atmosphere throughout the day.
In addition to two highly enjoyable hour-long performances, Jason and Matt conducted workshops for young and older enthusiasts to learn some basic playing skills and pick up some tips. A fun jam session with ukulele performers gathered from all around Australia for the event was another highlight of the day.
