International ukulele sensations Daniel Ward and Heidi Swederg are not to be missed!
Given her first ukulele at just 5 years old Heidi has more than 30 years experience as a performer working in music, film and television, notably playing the role of 'Susan' on Seinfeld. Growing up in New Mexico Daniel Ward is hugely influenced by a wide variety of musical styles including Mexican mariachi, Spanish flamenco, world music and jazz. As a guitarist, he toured with Dance España, Maria Benitez, Yjastros, and went around the world with Ottmar Liebert. In 2009 Heidi introduced Daniel to the ukulele and he quickly became a premier ukulele performer and clinician known for his command of Latin and world styles, with an expressive right hand that delivers beauty, speed and force. Both Heidi and Daniel have been featured performers and workshop instructors at festivals across the US and abroad and contribute lessons to both Ukulele Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine. London Ukulele Project is a not for profit organisation which encourages and facilitates music-making for all with the aim of building communities and enhancing wellbeing. Profits from their events go towards gifting free ukulele sets to schools and community groups.
