Ukulele Hooley by the Sea is Ireland's premier International Ukulele Festival run by the most enthusiastic of ukulele loving volunteers. The event attracts ukulele ensembles from all around the world to perform in the coastal area of Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin each year, and to have a good old fashioned hooley!
It's a family friendly, quirky event for all levels of ukulele enthusiasts and an all round great day out!
For it, I devised a character of a ukulele playing fish modeled on the famous uke performer and singer Cliff Edwards, also known as known as "Ukulele Ike". He is also the voice actor for the animated character Jiminy Cricket in Walt Disney's Pinocchio (1940).
