And close to home, the second annual Electric City Ukefest will be taking over the Eighth Step at Proctors in Schenectady on Saturday (September 21), bringing some of the top uke talents to Nippertown for a full day of workshops, demonstrations, jam sessions and an open mic, all leading up to the big gala Fleabag! ukulele concert in the evening.
