Film Screening: The Mighty Uke

Has anyone else noticed that ukuleles have become incredibly popular over the past few years? I bet you have. Who hasn’t seen at least one YouTube video of a cute, goofy girl covering a pop song (probably a Hall & Oates song) on the ukulele?

It’s not just hipster girls playing the uke either. Apparently this ukulele resurgence is taking place across different nations, cultures, ages, and musical tastes. People all over the world are turning to this adorable four-stringed instrument to express themselves?

The Mighty Uke is a documentary about this very subject. It’s playing tonight at Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Cinema at 7:30pm. But that’s not all! Right after the screening (the film is 76 minutes, FYI) Nashville’s very own ukulele band, The Ukedelics, will play a 30 minute set.

Uke on!
