Three Pines Farm Ukulele Jamboree with the Craig Family


music (noun): a magic harmonic connection between all human beings

This will be unlike any other music festival, and we are over-the-moon about it! It’s our magic-dream combination of community, talented music educators, inspiring farm scenery, joyful learning, good food, and general merrymaking.

Join us for this free event in which the Craig Family will introduce us to the happy & humble ukulele. They will inspire with a brief concert, provide a short lesson on ukulele fundamentals & resources, then we will break into groups to learn to play a song! We may even close the event with a mini-concert, featuring group performances. We’ll gather post-serenade for some homemade cookies and conversation. And that’s magic.

About Your Educators:

Saylar and Tracy Craig both grew up in the Cedar Valley, but moved overseas to become international educators after finishing their teaching degrees at the Univeristy of Northern Iowa. Over the past 20 years, they have worked in 3 international schools in 2 countries. They have two children, Kalia, age 17, and Harrison, age 13. Music is at the center of the Craig family, and everyone plays a multitude of instruments -- from violin, cello, guitar and bass to trumpet, French horn, and euphonium. They often perform as a family band, most recently at the Hard Rock Café in Singapore, but can also sometimes be seen performing in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area. As a part of larger service trips, they have also brought ukulele education to several impoverished communities in Southeast Asia.
