The Wild Blue Ukulele Orchestra is dedicated to expanding people’s notions about what the humble little four-stringed instrument can do. On Saturday, September 12, the library welcomed the Wild Blues back as they provided a virtual concert open to the public held on Zoom. They helped us roll out the new Ukulele lending library thanks to a grant from the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation. Patrons will now be able to check out ukuleles from our Library of Things.
Using a full range of ukuleles—from sopranino to baritone and banjolele to U-Bass—the Wild Blues perform primarily fully orchestrated, house-made arrangements of songs in a variety of genres (folk, jazz, rock, pop, classical, reggae, standards, and even some funk), with a smattering of vocal numbers thrown in.
Thank you to Wild Blue Ukulele Orchestra for helping us provide this wonderful, virtual experience!
