3035KA Rotterdam 
'The Uke Box' presents
The premier of the documentary

"Mighty Uke"
The Amazing Comeback 
of a Musical Underdog

The Film
MIGHTY UKE travels the world to discover why so many people of different nations, cultures, ages and musical tastes are turning to the ukulele to express themselves, connect with the past, and with each other. From the Redwoods of California through the gritty streets of Paris, from swinging London through Tokyo’s highrise canyons to Hawaii, ukers tell the story of the people’s instrument: The Mighty Uke

Meet The Makers
Canadian Film Makers, Tony Coleman & Margaret Meagher will be there to introduce the film and answer any of your questions afterwards. And, they're going to bring their ukuleles!



The Mighty Uke Road Show
Following the film, huge  ukulele hilarity will commence! Bring your ukulele and join in the Big Damn Ukulele Play Along. Click here to download the songbook!  You say you don't have a ukulele?! No worries, The Jumping Flea Market will be set up where you can purchase a ukulele starting at just 35,- euro's.

There will also be an Open Mic. Show us your 'U Factor'! And, there will also be a special performance by Aaron Lee from the good ol' USA. He's going to tell us all about the ukulele tour he made on his bicycle and play us some songs from his new album, The Ukulele Project.

Hi There Woodcutter! How you been doing? Hope y'all had a good summer and that the farm and all it's critters are doing well! Nova Scotia, i actually know quite a few folks there. I'd love to visit sometime. Looks LOVELY. Thanks for dropping by. ; )

Hey, girl! I was beyond excited when I saw you on the screen. Thought you'd disappeared into life and fretted! Really thought about you the other day when I was in one of the little shops in my village. They're selling candles (in lovely blue containers) MADE IN MISSISSIPPI! The owner said the company's 'somewhere on the coast." Going to get a few for Christmas gifts!

Otherwise, I'm still on a cloud, thought for a bit the light at the tunnel was a train coming - these self-pub companies are the Wild West without a sheriff - but, thanks to Rachel, she got thru the formatting nightmare.

We're going to NO for Christmas/New Year's. Have a new niece to meet!

Hope all's well on your end! Love ya!
