The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech continues their 2021 Spring HomeStage Series with a virtual concert from ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro on Thursday, March 4, 2021.

With his out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity and deep musicality, ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro takes the four-string, two-octave instrument to places no one has gone before. In this intimate night of music followed by a question-and-answer session, Shimabukuro will forge a deep emotional connection that is open, magical, and transcendent.

Jake Shimabukuro first came to the world’s attention with his soulful and original take on The Beatles’ While My Guitar Gently Weeps. The viral video of his rendition dominated YouTube in 2005 and currently has over 17 million views.

When music fans discovered Shimabukuro’s virtuosic approach to the ukulele, they were hooked. Albums such as Gently Weeps, Peace Love Ukulele, and Grand Ukulele topped the Billboard World Music Charts, and the musician performed at the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, and the Sydney Opera House, while making frequent appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Known for his fresh and fearless musical interpretations, especially his renditions of classic songs including Bohemian Rhapsody, Eleanor Rigby, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Shimabukuro’s latest album, Trio, includes his take on Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here and Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide.


Tickets are $10.00 for the general public and free for Virginia Tech students.

A recording will remain available to ticket holders for seven days following the live event.
