Ukulele performances and Shenanigans

What's more fun than playing the ukulele? Playing with a pack of ukulelians! At Shenanigans and Ukulele Clare performances, all levels of ukulelians and singers are welcome. Shenanigans can happen anywhere: Farmers markets, libraries, private parties, music venues .... We usually play from the latest Shenanigan packet (updated regularly). Know of a great venue or event that needs a Shenanigan? Want to hold one at your party or community? Let's talk!

Leadfoot Louise is a slightly twisted Americana string band, drawing deeply from a variety of genres, including bluegrass, Tin Pan Alley, blues, Irish, rock, and pop. Lead singer Rebecca Padula takes the occasional turn on the uke, Ukulele Clare plays ukuleles, dobro, harmonica, spoons, and whatnot; and even Dan "The Fiddle Man" Wyman gets a turn on the uke.
