Ukulele 101 with Jim

Jim Webster of Nashua River Instruments returns to the Beaman Library on Saturday, February 16, from 10:30am – 12:30 pm to teach the fundamentals and a few chords to get you strumming songs on the ukulele in no time. Ukuleles are affordable, versatile, portable, and great entertainment. A tip of the hat to Tiny Tim, but this is not your grandfather’s ukulele.

Jim is a master craftsman that builds beautiful ukuleles, guitars, mandolinettos, and his own creation the “pandolele” – a uke that uses an enameled bread pan for its body. For more information about Jim and Nashua River Instruments, please visit him at

Participants should bring their own uke if they have one; if not Jim will have ukes, and possibly pandolele’s for use also. Cost is $10 and pre-registration is required. Email, or call Mark Baldi at 508-835-6489 to register. Proceeds to be used to support school arts & music programs.
