Ukulele Demo with Dave Birney

  • SBWI Main Stage 2300 N. Adrian Hwy Adrian MI 49221 (map)

Dave Birney has lived most of his life in the Lansing, Michigan area. He has been an avid woodworker for close to 50 years, upon retiring from the construction industry he started building Ukuleles as gifts for friends.

“At first I felt an apprenticeship was in order so I started making ukuleles for friends and family, learning as I went. I studied books, the internet and best of all had dialog with other luthiers. I feel I learn from everyone I talk to and every instrument I examine. This learning will never end. It has grown into a business and I couldn't be happier, I get to work with unique and exotic woods everyday.” For more information visit
