What started as a decoration to commemorate his trip to Hawaii has turned into a passion for Bruce Hake. The Door County resident picked up the ukulele as his latest piece of art from Hawaii to hang on his wall. Under the encouragement of his wife, Hake took ukulele lessons and eventually joined the Ukulele Society of Door County, which meets twice a month on Sundays at the Door County YMCA’s Fish Creek facility. Hake says most people joining the club have never played an instrument before and find it easier to play than guitar.
The Ukulele Society of Door County will host Milwaukee-based musician Lil Rev in Egg Harbor on October 29 beginning with a workshop for players at 3:30 p.m. and a concert at 7 p.m. You can learn more about the events online with this story.
