Ukulele Legend Kimo Hussey
Kimo Hussey is an internationally renowned ukulele player and instructor. He is also an advocate for the therapeutic benefits of music and plays a large role in the operations and community outreach programs of The Pacific Music Foundation.
We recently had the great fortune of having Kimo Hussey play a custom baritone ukulele that Jay has built for a Canadian customer. This was his first introduction to Jay’s work and he actually played the ukulele in concert that evening. We only wish we could have been there!
We are so grateful to our friend Garth for sharing his lovely Lichty Ukulele with Kimo and to Kimo for sharing the following testimonial. What an honor!
“I just had an opportunity to play a Lichty ukulele in concert during my recent trip to British Columbia, Canada. I absolutely love this baritone ukulele! The tone is well-defined, it blends well with a very mellow sound. The intonation is very good. The touch on the uke feels right with a combination of the fretboard proportions and dimensions of the neck. I also like the feel of the body. The style of this uke Is very aesthetically pleasing with a classic, comfortable look to it. I am also partial to the design feature for this particular uke of threading the strings through the bridge rather than wrapping, or pinning them. Finally, the finish on this uke is very meticulous. Overall, from sound, to playability, to appearance, I give high marks for this instrument crafted by Jay Lichty!” – Kimo Hussey, Hawaiian master ukulele player and instructor.
