The guild’s luthier members, from Hawaiʻi and around the world, will exhibit their ‘ukulele-building craftsmanship in this weekend exhibition. View restored, antique collectable, and custom ‘ukulele ranging from the traditional to the innovative. Luthiers will be on hand to talk about their work and collections. Along with this stunning display there will also be live music and ‘ukulele playing. Visitors will enjoy the lively sounds of kanikapila—making music together. Relax and enjoy the music or pick up an ‘ukulele and songbook and join in.
The ‘Ukulele Guild of Hawai‘i is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation, perpetuation, and promotion of the ‘ukulele as a significant musical instrument. Founded by a small group of ‘ukulele builders on O‘ahu in the early 1990s, the ‘Ukulele Guild of Hawai‘i has grown to an international membership of over 300. These ‘ukulele players, historians, luthiers (stringed instrument builders), teachers, and collectors—some of the world’s finest—are committed to sharing the musical quality and liveliness that the ‘ukulele offers.
