Library Live Music: Ukulele Scramble
October 19, 2018
Join us for a concert featuring The Ukulele Scramble, consisting of Richard Perlmutter and Robin Hoffman. They sing and play rare, obscure and underperformed songs from the past 500 years; especially works from the Renaissance, and Parlor and Art Songs from the 19th Century. They update, revise and rewrite lyrics for many of these songs, often humorously, and perform them on ukuleles and other small stringed instruments. Richard is a songwriter, recording artist, and producer — and most notably the creator, lyricist and featured performer of Beethoven’s Wig, winner of over 50 awards, including 4 GRAMMY Award Nominations. Robin Hoffman began playing ukulele after retiring from her career as a professional ballet dancer, with companies including the Joffrey Ballet and Metropolitan Opera Ballet. She teaches ukulele at Greenfield Community College.
