Casey MacGill

UKEMAG09112018Casey MacGill plays rhythm on the ukulele with a super-solid feel supporting his stellar vocals. Whether it’s his classic swing strum, the groovy shuffle strum, or the sensuous rumba strum, he brings a deep pulse to the music. He began strumming during the folk music scare of the early ’60s, busked movie lines for “Easy Rider,” appeared on the Tonight Show, the infamous Gong Show, the movie “Frances,” and opened the Broadway show Swing! playing his uke.  He shares his intuitive feel for the instrument with audiences and students all over the world at festivals and workshops, and demonstrates why “It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got That Swing.”
