SPRUKE 2017 Day Program with Map
Uken’ make music all weekend at SPRUKE 2017! Held on Friday 29 September— Sunday 1 October at the South Bank TAFE campus, South Brisbane, the festival features live music, workshops, open mic, jams, a music bazaar and two main concerts. Bring the family, bring your uke, and have a different family day out!
ENTRY to the festival precinct is FREE with lots of activities and performances that won’t cost you a cent! For those who don’t mind spending a few dollars SPRUKE 2017 has ticketed concerts on Friday night and Sunday afternoon, and 23 workshops.
The festival opens on Friday evening with the SPRUKETACULAR Concert with Kyas Ryo (Japan), Ukulele Russ (Alaska, USA) and Manitoba Hal (Canada). Joining these international acts are homegrown ukulele stars Tyrone and Lesley, and The Pockets. See all of our performers here.
Over the weekend take your pick from checking out the performances, attending a workshop, relaxing in the sunshine catching the open mic…or get up and strut your stuff! Every Ukulelist of any ability will find lots to do and lots to inspire. The Beginners Oasis returns with ‘Beginners Ukulele Bootcamp’, and ‘Novice Songs’ sessions for learning a 2- or 3-chord song each half hour. The Festival Markets have everything the ukulele enthusiast needs in the music bazaar, and food and coffee to sustain you. Have a go at one of the busking spots around the festival.
The Morris Brothers Festival Finale is the crescendo with all our international acts joining our BUMS bands and ‘Ukestration’ for a fabulous fun end to SPRUKE 2017. Remember to bring your uke!
