Musician Jake Shimabukuro shares his life and love of the ukulele

    If the word “ukulele” conjures visions of slow, sleepy Hawaiian music, that’s just where virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro wants you at the start of a show; He thrives upending the low expectations people have of his instrument.


    Shimabukuro is on Radio Times this morning to talk about the music he’s been making since age 4. Now a YouTube star, Shimabukuro’s latest album, “Peace Love Ukulele,” will be on display tonight as he performs at the Baby Grand in Delaware.
