As I was driving out of Hawi, an adorable little town in the north of the Big Island of Hawaii, I saw the word Ukulele out of the corner of my eye and pulled a quick U-ey. I had to stop.
Hawi Gallery it said…there was also a sign that said local artists, local authors, local crafts, local jewelry, local music, and yes, local ukuleles. How could you not stop?
In addition to having a range of ukuleles to choose from, they also have ukulele workshops with Andy Andrews, the founder of the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz the third Thursday of every month.
They represent a number of bands including Aquila Strings, Big Island Ukuleles, D’Addario, Hal Leonard, Hawaii Kai Ukuleles, Island Provisions Ukulele Straps, Kiwaya Ukuleles, Riptide Ukuleles, Planet Waves, MEl Bay, and Zaphoon.
