The Southern New Hampshire Ukulele Group is holding their 3rd annual SNHUGFEST on Saturday, June 30, at Henry Law Park in Dover NH from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This free, all-day ukulele festival features musicians from Boston, New York, and Tampa – and includes a host of local-area favorites too.
The fun starts at 9:30 a.m. with a children’s ukulele lesson at Earcraft Music (432 Central Avenue – sign-ups at store). At 10:30 the kids will march to the stage at Henry Law Park to show off their newly acquired skills.
Each of the day’s performances will feature play-along jam sessions, so bring your uke! We’ll also make an attempt to break the unofficial NH strumming record, where everyone with a ukulele will hop on stage and join the fun.
SNHUG is an all volunteer, non-profit group of ukulele enthusiasts, that meet to jam, practice, do open mic events, and generally have fun. SNHUG is open to any and all levels of musical ability, and can be found on Facebook or Meetup.com.
SNHUG offers a forum for area uke players while also serving the community through fund-raisers and events for worthy causes, such as the Ukulele Kids Club. The UKC provides music therapy for kids during hospital stays. 100% of the proceeds from SNHUGFEST 2018 go the Ukulele Kids Club.
