This Saturday, May 21, at 2pm, the East Fourth Street Community Garden is hosting its third annual FREE spring concert featuring the Ukuladies and Don Rodríguez Gómez Rosa.

The garden is located on East Fourth Street, between Caton Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway.

Come enjoy the greenery, spend time with neighbors, and hear two great acts.

The Ukuladies are a perpetually touring “family act”—featuring fraternal twins, an aunt, and one tap-dancing cousin—that claims to be from Regina, Canada, with a lust for life and its idle curiosities. The ladies played music together under the tutelage of various uncles and an occasional grandmother, who nurtured the girls’ love of small instruments that make plinky sounds. Seeing and, more important, hearing their talents, a relative at a family picnic said, “Hey…you gals oughta get outta here and play somewhere else!!”
So they took that advice and headed for bigger prospects….in Winnipeg! From there on, they became the infamous Ukuladies, who are proud to have hit nearly every Holiday Inn on the Eastern seaboard.  Come and join the “ladies” as they share cowboy love songs, Ruth Wallis medleys, faves from the ’30s and ’40s, and a host of original hits!
