Ukulele Russ Workshop and Concert

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 8 Mar ’15, 3:00pm – 5:00pm


Outram Hall, 478 Beach Rd, Murrays Bay





Minus 40 degrees arrives on the North shore!

Just imagine for a moment, an Alaskan, living in a hut, hunting Bear and playing Ukulele!
Well that would be Ukulele Russ, who is coming to Auckland’s North Shore to play a one off concert and a workshop in Rothesay bay.

The workshop/concert will be run by Avon Hansen-Beadle who co-ordinates multiple Ukulele groups and conventions, Russ will be arriving in new Zealand after a performance at the Melbourne Ukulele Convention.

Ukulele Russ, who writes and performs his own songs, says:
“People think I’m going to play ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ songs all night,” he said. “It’s an instrument, you can play any song you want on it, but many people aren't convinced of that. They think that I’m stuck in my little box like ‘oh great, this is going to be this.’ But I like that. When people think I’m some bland dude singing happy ukulele songs and I’m not. So it’s really fun to win them over.”

Russ will be performing at the Outram Hall, Rothesay Bay at 3pm on Sunday 8th March.
Tickets are available $20 includes a glass of wine.
