Born in Hawaii in the 1880's, the ukulele was so easy to play that by the 20's, it was the most popular instrument in the American home. But then the rise of the rock and roll guitar pushed the uke into nerdy obscurity. UNTIL NOW! In the Internet age, the instrument is making a comeback, and a new generation is rediscovering a unique musical voice.

MIGHTY UKE travels the world to chronicle the amazing comeback of a musical underdog. Join us for a screening of this fascinating documentary, with post-viewing discussion and clinic with local uke rocker Timothy Mann!
