Jake Shimabukuro is lauded for his impressive versatility and transcendent exploration of genres on perhaps the unlikeliest of instruments: the ukulele. Shimabukuro takes the ukulele to places no one has gone before, performing awe-inspiring music that ranges from jazz, blues, and rock to bluegrass, classical, and folk.  

His appreciation for the entire spectrum of music is reflected in his diverse choice of musical collaborators. Shimabukuro’s award-winning and chart-topping albums feature some of the most applauded musicians of all time, including Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Loggins, and more.  

Before collaborating with musical giants and being dubbed the “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele,” Shimabukuro began his journey as a YouTube sensation, quickly going from playing tiny clubs to headlining some of the most prestigious concert venues. He performs live around the world with an out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity, deep musicality, and a natural entertainer’s flair.

Don’t miss your chance to see Jake Shimabukuro at the Carolina Theatre on September 29, 2023.
