2012 Display Booth

Steel Guitar Festival

“Are you Mele Fong? I saw you on television.”

A woman teaching hula lessons recognized Mele as we were setting up our display table in the courtyard of Kaanapali Beach Hotel. This was the first year that Henry and Sherron Allen asked Mele to participate in the annual Henry Allen Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival held April 20-22 at the hotel. We setup a booth with our new slogan “Are UKE having fun yet?” and sold first edition song booklets with DVD/CD and taught free ukulele lessons on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Kris, a teacher from California bought a book to take back with him.
