Who Knew?

Ukuleles Can Be Cool
Yes, they can. An inter-generational audience of near 80 people enjoyed the smooth sounds of the Jim Rosokoff Trio this afternoon at the library. The trio delighted the audience with familiar jazz standards and pop songs from the 30s though the 70's, as well as tunes that every child (or the child within you) knows by heart.

Rosokoff is a Glastonbury-based dermatologist who as Dr. Uke also leads the Glastonbury Ukulele Club. If you're a lapsed guitar player or a 'youngster' of any age who's looking to enjoy music and the camaraderie of others like you, give the club a try.

Special thanks to Jo Ann Ewing and the Senior Center crowd for coordinating a potluck luncheon to coincide with concert, which produced the "inter" in inter-generational enjoyment.
