Kimo Hussey – Saturday November 11, 2017 at 8:00pm
In an interview with Mike Lynch of AllThingsUkulele.com, Kimo talked about his life and love of Ukulele… “Through instructional efforts of the only ukulele instructor (My uncle Richard) I’ve ever had, I started playing at the age of 5. Throughout my entire life playing ukulele has always been about having fun and not about gaining mastery of the instrument through academic endeavor. In college, I majored in music with an emphasis in choral conduction as I had grown to love church music, especially performed by choirs. Eventual entry into the US Air Force to avoid the draft turned into a full-time career I so enjoyed bu also mean music was put on the back burner——until my eventual retirement. As now I am fully retired, I’ve totally embrace the ongoing ukulele renaissance and spend most of my time doing workshops and whatever I think is best to nurture ukulele’s continued growth.”
“I love to play, teach and nurture as best I can —- so therefore pursue any opportunity which affords me the means of doing this. One of my favorite activities is
to travel to ukulele workshops and events around the world not only to feed the resurgence but to meet other players as well.”
“Regarding playing ukulele, I love to push the envelope and embrace different styles or methodologies of play to assure the instrument’s continued growth. A big part of this is meeting and interfacing with ukulele makers so I know I play the latest technology instruments. They look better, sound better and are much easier to play. Yes, they do cost more but are worth every dime spent.”
“If you’re looking for someone to inspire your ukulele playing you couldn’t do much better than Kimo Hussey. He’s about the smoothest and classiest ukulelist around.” – UKULELE HUNT (UkuleleHunt.com)
