Ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro smiles as he performs “This Land Is Your Land” Saturday at Issaquah High School. Shimabukuro, a YouTube star who has been dubbed a “hero” by Rolling Stone and has played for the Queen of England, is conducting free workshops to promote music education during the day as he performs concerts across the country at night. Though much of the workshop focused on ukulele tips and performance, Shimabukuro said he wants to inspire people to find their creative passion in whatever form that may take.
