Event

Del Rey Blues Musician in Concert
Del Rey, from Seattle, Washington, is a complex, pianistic guitarist, described as a combination of Bo Carter and the Andrews Sisters (Observant Fan). Her guitar playing is influenced by country blues, stride piano, classic jazz and hillbilly boogie-all filtered through the sensibility of an autodidact trailor-park aesthete.

Del Rey is fascinated with the ukulele and plays the same kind of complicated rhythmic blues and ragtime on four strings as she does on six. She expects a lot out of the little instrument, and usually gets it. The ukulele taken to a new level of musicianship. (John Book)

Her live show is full of complex grooves and sly humor. Virtuosic in just the right way, which is to say, in order to realize a musical idea. A very nice unlikely blend of things, accessible, slightly nostalgic, but fresh and thoughtful.  (CD Baby review, At The Ukeshack #1)

Tickets for the show will be $15 advance, $20 at the door.

Del will also be offering two workshops on Sunday May 7th. A blues guitar workshop from 1-2:15pm. and a Ukulele workshop form 2:45-4:oopm. The workshop price is $30 or $25 with a concert ticket.
