Ukulele master, Kris Fuchigami is headed back to Roseville for a performance and ukulele workshop right here at The Strum Shop.  He is a two-time winner of the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Instrumental Composition.  Kris combines exceptional technique on the ukulele with masterful artistry as a composer for an unforgettable performance.

Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, 13-year-old Kris Fuchigami began his musical journey with an old beat-up ukulele in his hands and a strong desire to master that tiny little instrument.   Two years later Kris won the grand prize at the Hamakua Music Scholarship Competition on the Big Island where he competed against classical pianists, singers, drummers, and many other genres of musicians. Kris went on to headline, and perform at many ukulele festivals and has gained recognition throughout the world.

In 2016 he was nominated for the prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano Award in Hawaii for the Instrumental Composition of the Year category with his original composition of Moemoea, which he was inspired to write during a performing tour in Tahiti.  In 2018, he was again nominated for the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for the Ukulele Album of the Year Category with his album entitled "More Than This."  In both 2019 & 2021, Kris was awarded the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for "Instrumental Composition of the Year!"
