About this Event

HAWAIIAN MELODIES

Sam Lemann & Lucy Lemann

─────────────────────────────────────

Ukulele “Hawaiian Style” (Intermediate level)

Sam and Lucy visit Hawaii every year to improve their ukulele skills (and have fun!). They are keen to pass on tips and trick they’ve learned from many of Hawaii’s.best players and singers.

The workshop will focus on the all-important “right hand technique” - including strums and picking, and explore different approaches to playing Hawaiian style melodies and songs.

─────────────────────────────────────

Sam’s influences of swinging jazz, country music, blues and island sounds creep effortlessly and tastefully into both his Ukulele and Guitar Playing and see him in great demand by singers, songwriters and band leaders of many styles.

Currently the regular guitar player for Melbourne based singers Grace Knight and Stephen Cummings, but over the years Sam has performed with Gaby Moreno, Joe Camilleri, Linda and Vika Bull, Ross Wilson, Tom Burlinson, US Bluegrass Banjo legend Bill Keith and can often be spotted on a Melbourne stage with Hetty Kate, Jane Clifton, Andy Baylor, Lisa Miller, Michelle Nicolle or the B-Sharp Big Band - to name a few.

A regular visitor to Hawaii in recent years, Sam has studied with the late Slack-Key guitar guru, Cyril Pahinui and many of the islands best Ukulele players. This has lead to many performances at Ukulele festivals and recording several tracks for the 2011 ABC release, “The Ukulele” and on CD’s with Hetty Kate and the “The Irwell Street String Band”.

When not enjoying a light lunch in Acland St, chances are that Sam will be in a recording studio somewhere adding to his list of over 80 CD appearances.
