The Faulkner County Library is proud to present Ukulele Bill at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 25.

Ukulele Bill, aka Dr. William Higgs, D.D.S., brings a delightful program of song, laughter and history for the whole family. Follow the story of the ukulele through the years and enter to win one of three new ukulele’s from Jack’s Music.

If you have a uke of your own, bring it along and join in on "Sloop John B." We’re looking to beat a record of 26 ukulele’s at the Hot Springs Library! Words and chords are available to pick up at the library before the event.

Ukulele Bill plays several stringed instruments and builds his own ukuleles. In addition to his career as a dentist, he has played bluegrass from Memphis to the "ToadSuck Symphony." As he says of the ukulele, "It is truly a happy little instrument that can play almost any genre and time period. It can be very sophisticated or (mostly) very simple. You can truly celebrate life with your ukulele."

All library events are free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at 501-327-7482 or email Nancy@fcl.org, Facebook or Twitter.
