Headliner: Danielle Ate the Sandwich
Danielle’s concerts are a real treat – it’s simply impossible not to be delighted by the experience. She’s also, quite simply, a fabulous human being. We have been trying to coordinate schedules with this superstar for years and are THRILLED that she will be headlining KYukefest! Her particular gift is as a wordsmith and we know that her workshops will help you hone your songwriting skills.

Members of the ukulele community know jeremy messersmith for his album 11 Obscenely Optimistic Songs For Ukulele: A Micro-Folk Record For the 21st Century And Beyond. A thoughtful, clever lyricist with a tender voice, the Minneapolis-based troubadour crafts songs that are catchy and relatable, and span the emotional gamut from poignancy to whimsy. This is Jeremy’s first ukulele festival (but we’re guessing that it won’t be his last).
