As the sun shone, the PebbleCreek Ukulele Club, also known as “Island Style,” performed at the Glendale Folk Festival for an enthusiastic audience. The club has been a regular performer at the festival for the past three years, offering a 20-minute program featuring a blend of Hawaiian and folk numbers that got the audience singing along.
A Beautiful Hula and Workshop on Hawaiian Ukulele Music
Club member Irene Manalili performed a beautiful hula while the group played and sang the Hawaiian melody, “Lovely Hula Hands.” Later in the afternoon, the group held a workshop on Hawaiian ukulele music, with Irene teaching participants the hula. It was a fun and memorable experience for everyone involved.
Positive Feedback and Hawaiian Shirts
This year, the club brought the largest contingent of players ever to perform at the Glendale festival. The feedback on the performance was overwhelmingly positive, and the audience loved the Hawaiian shirts worn by the performers. The festival, held annually at the Saguaro Ranch Historic Park, offers many forms of acoustic music, food trucks, and booths.
