9:30 AM WORKSHOP & CONCERT Soundtrack: American Graffiti

Before the blockbuster success of Star Wars, George Lucas scored a hit with American Graffiti, a coming-of-age story based in part on the filmmaker’s own upbringing in Modesto, CA.  The movie’s soundtrack, steeped in the nascent Rock n’ Roll of the late-1950s, will provide a playlist for this Graffiti Weekend-themed ukulele workshop and concert with Paul Hemmings (ukulele) and Gaku Takanashi (uBass).  Sponsored by the Funstrummers Ukulele Band of Modesto.  $25 at the door.  For more information, go to
