Luthiers for a Cause and participating luthier Kinnard Ukes both will be exhibiting at the Los Angeles International Uke Festival on September 30, 2017 at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center (3330 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA 90503).
The LA International Uke Festival is a fun-packed, all-day event with playing workshops for players of all levels, group strum-alongs, and an expo area with exhibitors displaying ukuleles from entry-level to high-end customs. Plus, many of today's top ukulele musicians will be performing throughout the day, including Kalei Gamiao, Victoria Vox, Little 'Rev, Honoka & Azita and many more. Tickets for access to all activities throughout the day are just $45.
While the six Luthiers for a Cause charity ukuleles will not be unveiled together until November, this is your chance to get a sneak peek at the Kinnard project uke. Kinnard Ukes, the distributor for John S. Kinnard ukuleles, will be exhibiting several fine Kinnard ukuleles, including the Luthiers for a Cause project uke. This incredible tenor ukulele was made with wood from two legendary trees: the body wood is "The Tree" and the top is Lucky Strike Redwood.
Luthiers for a Cause will be offering merchandise with the project logo, with all proceeds going to benefit The Ukulele Kids Club, a non-profit whose mission is to harness the healing power of music by supporting music therapy programs and gifting ukuleles to pediatric hospital music therapy programs so that children in need can be sent home with the gift of music for life.
