BC Scene

The arts and culture of British Columbia come to Ottawa/Gatineau

April 21 to May 3, 2009

Ukulele Magic - James Hill In Concert

May 3, 2009, 4pm

Canadian Museum of Civilization

100 Laurier Street, Gatineau

Free Event

According to Stuart McLean, host of CBC Radio’s The Vinyl Cafe, B.C. native James Hill is the “Wayne Gretzky of the ukulele.” The instrument might have earned its reputation as that plucky little four-stringed guitar from Hawaii, but Hill’s contributions to the folk music scene have made the ukulele one of the hottest instruments in Canada.

Performing in concert with cellist Anne Davison, James will quickly show you why critics and audiences are raving about his skill and musicality.

About the Scene

Imagine 600 artists from B.C. representing all disciplines, performing in the national spotlight on the stages of Ottawa/Gatineau: that's BC Scene, presented by the National Arts Centre, spring 2009.
