Cliff Edwards: Ukulele Ike
Speaker: Ian Whitcomb
Wed, Aug 12, 5:00 - 5:50 pm
Shedd Rm 321, The Shedd Institute
Among the great vaudevillians who helped shape the Jazz Age, was a self-trained ukester who as much as any of his contemporaries embodied the spirit of his times: Cliff Edwards, "Ukulele Ike". While almost everyone knows of him as the voice of Jiminy Cricket, his career was a long and illustrious one, filled with strange and interesting tales…which musicologist and erstwhile ukester himself Ian Whitcomb is ready to relate.
