Performers

Daisy Uke 10am: Daisy Uke

Daisy Uke (for ukulele) has been writing and playing music for all ages since she was old enough to dance. After many collaborations with other artists—bands such as The Flea Jumpers, the punk girl band The Pink Rollers, and The Pop Rockets (rock music for kids and grown ups)—Daisy has branched out on her own, loving the freedom of recording in her bedroom studio. She also is enjoying walking barefoot in the sunshine as she slowly moves about her yard envisioning her Tree House Studio, which will be built soon, once she can find a welcoming tree, a good hammer, and some shiny nails. Daisy is in the process of finishing her children's ukulele CD Garden Songs.
Jim the bubble man 11am: Jim the Bubble Man

Jim the Bubble Man delights children and adults alike with his bubbles. After a career in the business world, he now enjoys making bubbles, volunteering at many local parks, beaches, summer concerts, and a range of community events. Today, as we all spend more and more of our time focused on digital screens, Jim believes bubbles can be a wonderful reminder that simple things can still bring joy and fun into our lives.
