Sorry for all the email. I forgot this very important one on the event listing I sent out last night, which is happening on Tuesday 8/9 at 8 PM:Two Ukuleles are Better than One Tour
Mama's Crow Bar
189 Congress Street
Ukulele performer and bicycle tourist, Aaron Lee is back on the road again - and with some company this time. Lee joins forces with fellow ukuleleist Tucker Louisos-Daniels for a short tour in Maine that they have dubbed the "Two Ukuleles are Better Than One Tour." The pair will be riding bicycles to transport themselves, and their gear, between shows.
Last year, Lee launched the "Ukulele by Bicycle Tour" and has been traveling between concerts by bicycle on and off for much of the past year, logging over 4000 miles and performing more than 80 shows, many of which are partnerships with community organizations that share the tour's values of community, local action and sustainability.
"I've been trying to get somebody to ride with me for a long time," said Lee, when asked if he ever gets lonely on the road.
Lee and Louisos-Daniels promise a fun mix of cover songs, including many that you would never expect to hear on a ukulele, and originals from Lee's album, "The Ukulele Project," in which each song creatively and intentionally includes the word ukulele. Audiences are guaranteed to leave the show with a smile on their face, a ukulele song in their head, and the knowledge that two ukuleles really are better than one.
So next Tuesday, for a full evening of bike fun, start at Portland Greendrinks at Maine Green Building Supply (111 Fox Street) from 5:30 on, find some food in between, then drift over to Mama's Crow Bar for beer and fine ukulele music! (Be aware Mama's Crow Bar is cash only!)
