“Mighty Uke Day is a celebration of the diminutive yet dynamic ukulele and honors its unique ties to Michigan culture as well as its contributions to music education and appreciation in the schools and community.”

Our seventh annual Mighty Uke Day festival is coming to Old Town Lansing May 11 – 13, 2018 for a weekend of fun and music! As usual, MUD8 will feature concerts, workshops, group strums, open mics, featured performers, children’s activities, informal opportunities to jam, and much more.
