“In short, a night out with James Hill & Anne Janelle is the perfect evening of tunes, stories and musical virtuosity.” — Wellington Dominion-Post James Hill, “possibly the best ukulele player in the world” (Waikato Times), grew up playing folk, jazz and blues on his ukulele. Anne Janelle, “a cellist of true beauty” (Ottawa Citizen), played only classical music on her cello. But the pair’s differences became their greatest asset: the uke is high, the cello is low; the uke plays short notes, the cello long bow strokes; the uke is all about strumming while the cello radiates melody. This duo combines their strengths for a unique sound that’s warm, intricate, and completely enchanting. You may also be interested in attending entire Uke Fest camp, May 26–29, 2017, where James and Anne will be teaching. If you are registering for Uke Fest, concert admission is included in tuition.
