Jake Shimabukuro

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Jake Shimabukuro has elevated the ukulele from a beloved Hawaiian folk instrument to a world-class vehicle, fearlessly traversing boundaries and putting his inspired touch on everything from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” to Schubert's “Ave Maria.” And he can still vividly remember the first time he held a ukulele, at age four. “I fell in love with the ukulele immediately,” Jake recalls. “From that day on, you had to pry the instrument away from me in order to get me to do anything else.”

In Jake’s early touring days, everyone was surprised that he could even attempt such complex music on such a humble instrument. But now, they know better. Jake has drawn comparisons to musical titans such as Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, has collaborated with everyone from Yo-Yo Ma to Cyndi Lauper, and was the subject of an acclaimed 2012 documentary, Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings.

National Geographic >

In an effort to share the Grand Canyon’s uncharted glory and shed light on the myriad threats it faces, writer Kevin Fedarko and photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride set off on an audacious and demanding adventure this year: to transect the length of the canyon on foot. This trek is not the pair’s first adventure together, but it may be the toughest.

An award-winning photographer, writer and filmmaker, Pete has traveled to over 70 countries for a number of publications and companies, including National Geographic Society, Outside magazine, Patagonia and The Nature Conservancy. A passionate conservationist, Pete has been named a “Freshwater Hero” by National Geographic.

Kevin left his post as a top editor at Outside magazine for the dusty abyss of the Grand Canyon. Kevin is the author of The Emerald Mile and his work has been featured in National Geographic Adventure, Esquire and Time, among other publications.

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers, and adventurers to audiences around the world to share their unbelievable behind-the-scenes stories and stunning images and video—live onstage.
