Event Details

Our incredible 2018 Palm Strings lineup includes seven new faces to our uke-in-the-desert soiree! Grammy Award winners Daniel Ho, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, and legendary rock virtuoso David Lindley headline the group. A rare appearance by Seattle's blazingly fast ukester and popular online instructor Matt Dahlberg, flamenco wizard Daniel Ward, and Seinfeld-regular turned ukulele-chanteuse Heidi Swedberg round out the first timers. Returning instructor/performers include the most experienced and inspirational uke instructor on the planet, Langley Ukulele Ensemble Director featured in "The Mighty Uke," Peter Luongo, the most prolific author of instructional guides in the uke world, Fred Sokolow, and multi-instrumentalist par-excellence, Abe Lagrimas, Jr.

The festival will begin with Thursday afternoon Early Bird workshops, followed by a poolside meet-n-greet reception/jam/concert (weather permitting) with jams and wild performances at the bar & grill that will have you grabbing your plastic ukes and jumping into the pool to party along! Food & Drink will be available for purchase from the Hilton. This get together is a special evening for all 2 and 3 day passholders and their guests. 

On Friday and Saturday we will offer full days of workshops for players of all levels and abilities, a day stage with a mix of free entertainment and open-mic for those of you who want to perform, and a vendor marketplace for those of you who like to shop. Friday and Saturday Nights wrap up with outstanding concert events.

WHERE: The Hilton Palm Springs is just a short stroll from the heart of the boutique district, at 400 E. Tahquitz Canyon Way.
