Brain Plasticity Ukulele Collective

Tuesday, June 25 at 6:45PM | Rackham stage

Genres: Ukulele Folk, Blues Rock, Pop Rock

Stalwarts of the Ann Arbor scene, the Brain Plasticity Ukulele Collective is known for their intergenerational acumen, sharing instruments, knowledge, kindness, and talent across eras. Encompassing all styles, genres, and levels of ability, the collective includes members ranging in age from 35-89 and has been performing together live for eight years. The collective utilizes a wide array of instruments beyond ukuleles, from the eclectic sounds of accordion, mandolin, and mandola to more conventional instruments like guitar, flute, percussion, harmonica, bass, and piano. The group is inspired by the concept that music cuts across diverse cognitive capabilities and resources, including numeracy, language, and space perception. The heart and soul of their endeavor is formed by love, community, enjoyment, and laughter, furthering the imagination of their collective possibilities and wonderment. By taking chances, trying something new, and sharing in the power of music, the Collective believes that anyone can: “Come and drop a brain bomb with us. Fire up the synapses. Rewire some neurons and strum into some rock’n’roll cognition.” Everyone is welcome, and all are encouraged to dance to the groove. Join the fun and check out their musical odyssey live on stage this summer at A2SF!
