Lichty Guitars to Exhibit at the 2017 Hawaii Ukulele Festival
Each year the Ukulele Guild of Hawaii presents the 2017 Hawaii Ukulele Festival and it seems like it just gets better and better! We’re excited to announce that we’ll be exhibiting, presenting and just hanging out and having fun! Here are some event highlights:
- Exhibition of the Finest Custom Ukuleles and an opportunity to Meet the Makers (Yes, Lichty Ukuleles will be on exhibit)
- Free Workshops for Makers and Players
- Vintage Ukulele Display
- Kanikapila and Concerts for Everyone
- and more
In addition to that great line-up, we’ve got news about more excitement:
Luthiers for a Cause goes to Hawaii: As many of you know, we have been involved with a project called Luthiers for a Cause. It has involved 6 luthiers who have each been building tenor ukuleles out of wood from the same two trees. The goal is to discover the nuances in the instruments between builders and, in addition, to raise funds for a most-worthy cause – The Ukulele Kids Club. We are excited to share that, thanks to the generous open-arms of the Ukulele Guild of Hawaii, the completed ukuleles will be on display at the festival. Stay tuned for more details. We are super excited about being able to see and hear all of the instruments!
A Presentation at the Festival by Corrie: While the primary focus of this gathering is guild members getting together and talking shop, event organizers reached out and asked me (Corrie 🙂 ) to share some bite-sized tips that might help luthiers to have greater success in building their businesses. So, you’ll see a session on marketing in the schedule line-up.
We are looking forward to a great event and to visiting with friends old and new. More news to come as the event gets closer …
