2023 Festival Performer

Gerald Ross & Frank Youngman

Gerald Ross (geraldross.com) is one of the finest instrumentalists on the scene today. Whether he is playing the guitar, the ukulele, or the Hawaiian steel guitar, his music expresses a sense of rhythm and melody that is rare in contemporary music. Gerald’s musical virtuosity and entertaining mix of swing, blues, Hawaiian, American roots music and Tin Pan Alley are a joy to hear.

Joining Gerald on the Centennial Stage is fellow ukulele aficionado Frank Youngman, who has been playing all types of music his whole life. A multi-instrumentalist, he has performed in places as diverse as The Improv Comedy Club in New York City to A Prairie Home Companion. A founding member of The Lost World Stringband, Pet Survey, and Jive at Five, Frank continues to keep a busy recording and performing schedule. The uke was his first instrument.
