Louisa Hall


Musical and jovial since youth, singer-songwriter Louisa Hall found the perfect match in the ukulele. Her lighthearted music has graced varied venues, including the Black Cat, the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Hamilton Live, 9:30 Club, and even a junk boat on Halong Bay, Vietnam. She frequently contributes to The Circus Life podcast, Capital City Showcase, and Nine Songwriter Series. In addition to performing and writing, she is also a music educator, teaching both group and private ukulele lessons. She is delighted to join The Sweater Set in celebrating the mighty ukulele at the Millennium Stage!
