WellTemperedUkesBeginning this fall, patrons and followers of the ukulele can regularly meet The Well Tempered Ukes as they begin a musical residency at Forbes Library. This residency, the first of its kind for the library, aims to support artist process and program development by providing time, space and opportunity for teaching, performance, and conversation.

Once a month The Well Tempered Ukes, a trio which plays and sings mainly early music, and parlor and art songs, will present an hour long public session. They will perform selected new and old songs from their repertory, share historical and cultural information about the songs and their ukuleles, and offer tips and insights into ukulele playing and performance.

Sessions will take place in the historic Calvin Coolidge Museum housed in the Forbes Library. Dates and times for the fall are Monday, October 19 at 7 pm; Saturday, November 21 at 1 pm; and Monday, December 21 at 7 pm. Open and free to the public.
