Leading ukulele manufacturer Flight is celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend. Having originally planned to mark the occasion at the now cancelled Frankfurt MusikMesse, Flight has moved the party online, and is proud to announce Flight Fest Live. Now the Flighters (Flight fans) will be able to watch the show directly from the comfort of their homes, no matter where they are!
This is a first time that a ukulele brand has organized a live streaming event on such a scale, connecting more than 35 ukulele players from all over the world. Flight artists from the USA, Mexico, Russia, Finland, the Netherlands, UK, Germany, Argentina, Spain, Portugal and even el Salvador will stream on their Instagram accounts for two consecutive days on the 4th and 5th of April.
Major US-based YouTubers Elise Ecklund and U Can Uke will take part in the celebrations, as well as professional fingerstyle players Dani Usero and German duo The Ukuleleaves. The event isn’t just about pure entertainment; several players will also host online ukulele workshops, which should attract a big viewing audience: during the COVID19 quarantine many people are turning to the ukulele as a new and inexpensive hobby (as confirmed by Glimpse COVID-19 Consumer Trends Impact Tracker – https://meetglimpse.com/covid19/).
