Luthier Jay Lichty – Hawaii Ukulele Festival 2016
The Ukulele Guild of Hawaii began in the mid-90’s when a small group of ukulele builders got together to exchange ideas. The group now includes over 150 members and Kimo Hussey is at the helm as the current president. The Guild is the host of the Hawaii Ukulele Festival coming up November 18-20th at Waikiki Beach. The event will feature an exhibit of over 100 of the finest ukuleles (vintage and new), along with concerts, workshops and an opportunity to visit with many of today’s top ukulele builders.
We are proud to share that Jay has been invited to exhibit. The luthier line-up is exciting so Jay is looking forward to both sharing the latest Lichty Ukuleles and being inspired but what the other builders bring to the table. Should be a great event! Many thanks to Kimo and the Guild for making it happen.
- Stay tuned for news about each Lichty Ukulele that will be featured at the event.
