12:45-13:30 Garden Stage
Saturday 18 June
Ukulele Simon is a singing / beatboxing ukulele entertainer from Norwich.
He started as a drummer at the age of 11 and after years of switching between instruments, he came across the ukulele at 21. Before he knew it he was hooked and begun playing at weddings, pubs, venues, hen parties, picnics, birthdays, campfires and anything else you can think of.
In September 2018 he focused his energy on his social media presence and has amassed 10k+ followers on Instagram. This spurred the release of his EP “Uke It Loop It”, a collection of some of his favourite chart toppers that you definitely wouldn’t have heard played on the ukulele before.
His signature sound comes from using effects such as wah-wah, distortion and reverb alongside beatboxing and singing. All of this is coupled with a high energy performance that is guaranteed to
have you singing along. With a repertoire of over 200 songs, ranging from Stevie Wonder to The Prodigy, there is nothing this man won’t try on the ukulele, just you wait and see.
