Description

We all could use more happiness in today’s world and it’s impossible not to smile while strumming a ukulele. Join Davey Harrison as we spend two hours exploring techniques and ideas that will keep you moving forward on your ukulele journey. We will address different strumming patterns, chords, and learn some fun repertoire to bring sunshine to daily life.

Originally from Gloucester, England, Davey Harrison found his passion for the mandolin and American Roots music while growing up in Wisconsin. His constant love for music led him to study Classical Vocal Performance at Lawrence University’s Conservatory of Music in Appleton, WI. Davey then attended the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA where he received a Master’s of Music in Contemporary Improvisation focusing on mandolin and vocal performance.

Davey now lives near Oconomowoc and performs frequently with his wife and musical partner Maire Clement in their duo the Boston Imposters. Their original music combines the influence of many folk traditions with their own personal stories and perspectives.

Davey teaches mandolin, guitar, claw-hammer banjo, voice, and songwriting…and ukulele!
