Ukulele phenomenon Victoria Vox will be performing and leading a unique workshop for other ukulele aficionados on May 15 at the Carnegie Arts Center.
Vox has been honing her songwriting and voice for the past 10 years, performing around the globe in Australia, Europe, Canada, and across the USA. She began writing songs at age 10, inspired by artists Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, primarily writing songs with the guitar. She went on to earn a degree in songwriting from the Berklee College of Music in 2001, and then at the age of 24 she was given a ukulele and never looked back. The small four-stringed instrument proved to be an excellent vehicle for her songwriting, while not getting in the way of her endearing vocals and seemingly simple, but really smart, songs.
Vox will hold a pre-concert workshop from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. May 15 on how to play one of the songs from her new album "Keys". The workshop is $10 and hosted by the Turlock Uke Jamz. The concert will follow at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for non-members and $10 for members.
