  Jake Shimabukuro has become the world’s foremost ukulele player, taking the instrument into a wild range of musical realms beyond its Hawaiian origins. His most recent CD, Nashville Sessions, is an electric trio release with bassist Nolan Verner and percussionist Evan Hutchings. He returns to Eugene for a performance at the Jacqua Concert Hall of the Shedd Institute tonight, March 3rd, and he’s here live in the KLCC studios. 

The Odyssey of These Days is an exhibition blending Wesley Hurd’s art with live Celtic chamber music from Eliot Grasso and Dreos.  It focuses on the transition from grief to hope, and was deeply affected by the shootings at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg in 2015.
