LEE, Maine — Home on the Grange will host the University of Maine at Machias Ukulele Orchestra at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, located at 2766 Lee Road.
The University of Maine at Machias Ukulele Club was founded in 1926, then went dormant (or underground) for 80 years, until Gene Nichols (Professor of Music) and Jim Sawyer (Powers Hall custodian and Gluru [ukulele maintenance man]) decided to revive it in the winter of 2006. Since then, the “orchestra” has played at parades, parties, dances, festivals, concerts and shindigs of all sorts (including funerals). This fall they’ll be playing the opening concert at the 4th International Ukulele Ceilidh in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.
Tickets are $10, and are available at the Artisans’ Store, Friday – Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. for more information, call 738-4696 or email firstname.lastname@example.org/
