Who is AJ Leonard?

AJ is Australia's premier and most congenial ukulele player.  Join AJ and cellist Jenny Rowlings as they narrate and accompany their new Theme Concert; "In A Little Hula Heaven" a wonderful tale of the Ukulele with amazing old images gathered over the years. The songs chosen for this performance are historically pivotal to our little four string friend, including:

Ukulele Heaven, I Will, Hawaiian War Chant (Inst), Ku’u Pua (Inst), On The Beach At Waikiki, Hone A Ka Wai (Inst), Don’t Sing Aloha When I Go, Haole Hula (Inst), Singing In The Rain (sing along), Magic Ukulele Waltz (Inst), Making Wicky Wacky Down In Waikiki, Sweet Leilani, Tiptoe Through The Tulips, Tea For Two (Inst) and Over The Rainbow (sing along).

Support: The Paterson Pluckestra, Ukestral Voices and this year's Ukastle Ukestra going to Hawaii will each do three songs which should leave you swooning and ready for AJ and Jenny.
