Ukulele virtuoso James Hill coming to the Outer Banks

Ukulele virtuoso James Hill coming to the Outer Banks

James Hill is a ukulele virtuoso. Perhaps ukulele and virtuoso in the same sentence seems an oxymoron, but the best way to learn the truth of the statement is come to St. Andrews by the Sea Episcopal Church in Nags Head Nags Head, Sunday May 7 as the Bryan Cultural Series brings James Hill and the genius of his ukulele performance to the Outer Banks.  The performance will begin at 4:00 p.m.

Hill has been hooked on the instrument ever since he was introduced to it in the fourth grade in his childhood home of Langley, British Columbia. 

Since that early initiation into world of what is often considered a simple instrument to play, Hill has taken the ukulele to places few dare to go. He rocks out to Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin; jazz—he does that as well. Blues, of course. Even a touch of Michael Jackson and some country thrown in.

And he does it all with a wry and subtle sense of humor that puts the audience at ease and gets everyone ready to sit back and be amazed.

Brought to the Outer Banks by the Bryan Cultural Series, Hill’s musicianship and personality make this a perfect afternoon treat the whole family will enjoy. With his extraordinary repertoire of music and his ability to recreate just about any sound on his instrument, his performance is sure to have everyone leaving with a bounce in their step and a smile.

James Hill’s performance will be at St. Andrews by the Sea Episcopal Church in Nags Head on Sunday, May 7 at 7:00 p.m.
