Mighty Uke Day 5 is Friday through Sunday in Old Town Lansing. It’s promoted as a celebration of the “diminutive yet dynamic” instrument and its ties to Michigan culture. There will be performances by professionals, and opportunities for beginners to try their hand at playing the ukulele.

Current State welcomes Ben Hassenger back to Studio S. Ben is the organizer of Mighty Uke Day. He brought along Steve Szilagyi to play Ben’s song “Uke and Me.”
