June 29 – Ukulele Bartt with his Rocking String Quartet
Ukulele Bartt Warburton has performed worldwide across Australia, New Zealand, England, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Greece, America, and lots of other places. His romantic and quirky songs, from “Pluck You” to “Do You Know Where I’d Like to Kiss You?” appear on his three studio albums, and in videos that have garnered millions of views.
Known for his revved-up ukulele renditions of Classical and Flamenco music, Bartt’s live show is packed with fancy fingers and mirth. This special concert will feature Bartt’s full band: Classical string quartet, electric bass and drums. Beethoven and Mozart would love it!
As a music educator, Bartt was named “Teacher of the Year” in the 40,000-teacher Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest school district in the world. He’s been profiled on American television and in newspapers, and has released numerous music albums on his own label, Warburtunes Music. He’s also written three ukulele instructional books, and he has several full-length instructional videos available worldwide. His signature Ukulele, the Mahalo Starter Pack, is the world’s best-selling uke, as certified by Amazon.com. Check him out at Bartt.net right now!
