On Saturday, August 29, our friends Heidi Swedberg and Daniel Ward will be throwing an End of Summer Ukulele Blowout at the E.P. Foster Library in historic downtown Ventura, California. The free family-friendly event, which will take place from 1 to 5 pm, includes beginner and intermediate workshops, along with lots of jamming and singing.

To get you ready for the big blowout, watch Heidi and Daniel lead the Santa Monica High School Orchestra through a buoyant version of Harry Belafonte’s “Turn the World Around,” recorded this past April at the Santa Monica Ukulele Festival. And stay tuned for Heidi’s essay in the upcoming Winter issue of Ukulele magazine!
