About this Episode

Strumming the Spirit of Aloha Through Alaska

Rowena describes "Aloha" as, "Sharing the best of myself with you and in return you share the best of yourself with me."

If the temperature of traveling to Alaska concerns you - traveling with a pair of Hawaii ambassadors will insulate you better than your downy parka. Brain and Rowena Vasquez will share their aloha and advanced ukulele instruction on this 2nd annual Ukulele Lover's Cruise.

Ukulele’s available on board, or bring your own Ukulele! I’ve personally purchased two, Ukulele’s from Rowena and Brian. They will send them right to your home so you can practice ahead of time. I have to say that the two Ukulele’s I purchased are both visually stunning and sound really warm. I have received follow up emails on Ukulele instruction and Ukulele chord charts. I have a happy customer!

On this episode you will here Rowena, Brian and Chuck recap the 2018 Ukulele Lover's Cruise and what guests can look forward to for the 2020 Ukulele cruise to Alaska. Rowena stresses that this is not a cruise where you will learn a few songs on the Ukulele. (This is a typical outcome of the begginer instruction level they offer on Hawaii itineraries.) They truly want you to understand and learn the Ukulele. Participants must have Ukulele basics (strumming and three common chords) in order to join in the instruction.
