Award-winning Canadian "uke slinging songsmith" James Hill is known for his folksy "roots" rock and Americana approach to music. He has wowed audiences with his full-band virtuoso performance of "Billie Jean" on his ukulele and his unusual percussive presentation with his ukulele and a pair of chopsticks.
A classically trained musician presents concerts and workshops at ukulele festivals and education conferences around the world. Hill co-created the "Ukulele Program in the Classroom" in 2008 and has developed "The James Hill Ukulele Initiative," the world's only certified teacher education program for ukulele, to promote and celebrate "the leaping flea," the literal translation of the Hawaiian word, "ukulele."
His concert in Tampa, a first, is presented by the Florida State Fair and the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society, the largest ukulele club in the state with more than 2,200 online members from throughout the world.
