Ukulele Russ to Perform and Teach at Crazy Crow Productions in Seldovia,  Alaska

Alaska’s Ukulele Wild Man

Unconventional Ukulele for Unconventional People

Songs you love. Songs you hate. Songs you love to Hate.
Biography
Alaska’s Guitar Alternative and ukulele wild man, Ukulele Russ. One man adrift in the guitarist’s jungle. Hailing from the edge of civilization in interior Alaska, Russ has carved out his niche and finally has proven to the masses that the ukulele is stringed testosterone in the hands of the right man.
Description
Alaska—the Final Frontier. Alaska has captured imaginations ever since Thomas Jefferson purchased it from the French for two cases of whiskey and a buckskin pouch of glass beads. And now, with the birth of the interwebs and the dawn of the reality TV age upon us, people once again turn their eyes northward. They are enthralled with Alaska, but is what they see really reality?

Band Interests
Social commentary, catchy hooks, and funky licks.

Ukulele Russ May 30 at Crazy Crow Summer 2014 Begins!!

 ukeruss teaching Crazy Crow will be hosting Ukulele Russ on May 30, 2014 for a house concert and ukulele  workshop May 31.  

Show will begin at 7 PM.  Saturday

Workshop hrs. TBA. Sunday

Call 907-234-7614  for reservations and details.

The house concert will be at the Seldovia Rowing Club and will be the usual wonderful, intimate affair.  The workshop will involve our local Ukulele Club of Seldovia .  Both are open to all, but you should save a spot by calling Crazy Crow Productions.
“One adrift, alone in the guitarist’s jungle, is here to bring light onto the greatest stringed instrument known to man, the ukulele. That’s right, the little one with the plastic strings.  Well guess what? I’ll tell you something you might be interested in knowing. Limitations are for people, not ukuleles.

I’m the kind of guy who opts for the Geo Metro in the Mac Truck world we live in. I live on the edge of civilization in interior Alaska in a dry cabin. Dry? Cabin? Yes. No running water.  No plumbing unless you count the sink I have in my kitchen that drains into a bucket.  Yes… I have an outhouse.

I hunt moose. I harvest salmon for the freezer and slay the trout. I snowshoe into strange hard to get places and tool around on the trails on my three wheeler… because I can’t afford four. Iplay ukulele for a living.

Several years ago I used to tour the lower 48 with a funk rock band. Now I play full time in the last frontier, Alaska. From elementary school classrooms to raunchy bars. I do it all.”  Ukulele Russ

Call’s sound is soulful, honest, humorous, and clever, loved by all types — computer geeks, church ladies, teenage groupies, NPR listeners, and urban hipsters worldwide. Marian toured all 50 states in 2010 and continues to tour around the continent at a rapid clip.  She hopes to play for you soon — find more information athttp://mariancall.com.
