"I had 'heard about' Ralph Shaw but never had the experience til last night. You are more than a performer and entertainer - you are a powerful force onstage, celebrating all that is good and delightful and human - we are caught up and swept along in your enthusiastic celebration. Thank you for sharing your fun and your wonderful musicianship - you are a gift on the planet!" Joey Minshall, West Coast Sings
2015 is Festival year. I just got back from a stint as International headliner for the Melbourne Ukulele Festival. While there I was interviewed for ABC Radio's Australia All Over by Ian McNamara aka. Macca. He's a fine musician and you can see how he relishes playing along with this Inkspots song If I Didn't Care .
Early May finds me at the Reno Ukulele Festival - please check Tour Dates for concerts + workshops in Anacortes, Bellingham, Eugene and Seattle.
End of May I'm headlining the Toronto area Ukulele Festival in Midland subtitled Weekend at Ralph's. It's so very cool and humbling to have a festival named after me!
Midsummer I'll be at the Vancouver Island Music Festival (July 10), the Dawson City Music Festival (July 24) and the Robson Valley Music Festival (Aug 14.) Check Tour Dates for more info and I look forward to meeting you somewhere along the way!

"Ukulele King Ralph Shaw offered the most radical makeover of the night, showing us what George Formby might have done with "London Calling" and "Hateful". I'll state here and now that I'd pay to hear him do the entire album this way — it was magnificent." Adrian Mack, Georgia Straight
