Jake Shimabukuro @ Montreal Jazz Fest – July 5, 2016

Jake Shimabukuro is part of a double bill show with Tommy Emmanuel. The show at the Montreal Jazz festival will occur on Tuesday July 5, 2016 at 7pm. If you’ve followed Asian American music then Jake is one musician that you may have encountered. He’s a virtuoso player of the ukulele. It’s an instrument that was never really considered to be very cool but listening to Jake’s mad skills make it totally cool. Youtube was also instrumental in growing his popularity when his cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps went viral.
