O.K. That’s a headline I never thought I’d write but yes the Everett Public Library will be hosing two ukulele parties next month. Here’s more.

The Everett Public Library will host two all-ages ukulele parties on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020. The first party will take place at the newly remodeled Evergreen Branch Library, located at 9512 Evergreen Way, at 10:30 a.m. The program will repeat at the Main Library, located at 2702 Hoyt Ave., at 2:30 p.m. There will be 25 ukuleles available for the community to use in each session. Participants are welcome to bring their own ukuleles.

The ukulele is a wonderful instrument to learn. It’s small and unintimidating, and its four nylon strings are easy on the fingers. It’s also portable, satisfying, and tons of fun!

The Everett Public Library’s ukulele parties will be led by Aaron Canwell of the Oregon-based band Micah and Me. The band has become a Pacific Northwest staple, playing at fairs, festivals and museums. Canwell will use a progressive approach, beginning with carefully chosen one-chord songs and ending with a five or six-chord song, depending on the class. Canwell uses large chord charts to help the class keep their heads up and follow along. It’s a thoughtful, proven approach that could be the beginning of a new musical you.

For further information, please call 425-257-8000. To see more events, check out the Everett Public Library events calendar.
