On I Tell a Fly, Clementine uses his personal history as a prism through which to view the world around him, musically exploring unknown territories.

FRAN LEBOWITZ: Author, Journalist & Social Observer

Live at Benaroya Hall >

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. Her writing offers insights on timely issues such as gender, race, gay rights and the media, as well as her own pet peeves — among them celebrity culture, tourists and strollers. The New York Times Book Review calls Lebowitz an "important humorist in the classic tradition." Purveyor of urban cool, Leibowitz is a cultural satirist who has often been named a modern Dorothy Parker. Now, she brings her acerbic views on current events and the media to the Benaroya Hall stage for an exclusive one-night-only engagement. Lebowitz will be interviewed by Paul Constant, co-founder of The Seattle Review of Books.

Jake Shimabukuro

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Jake Shimabukuro has elevated the ukulele from a beloved Hawaiian folk instrument to a world-class vehicle, fearlessly traversing boundaries and putting his inspired touch on everything from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” to Schubert's “Ave Maria.” And he can still vividly remember the first time he held a ukulele, at age four. “I fell in love with the ukulele immediately,” Jake recalls. “From that day on, you had to pry the instrument away from me in order to get me to do anything else.”

In Jake’s early touring days, everyone was surprised that he could even attempt such complex music on such a humble instrument. But now, they know better. Jake has drawn comparisons to musical titans such as Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, has collaborated with everyone from Yo-Yo Ma to Cyndi Lauper, and was the subject of an acclaimed 2012 documentary, Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings.
