Festival: UkeFest If all goes according to plan, a Guinness World Record will be broken in North Bethesda next week. The record in question is in the Largest Ukulele Ensemble category, and the record breakers will be whoever decides to attend UkeFest. Grammy-winning hosts Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer will not only perform a free ukulele concert, but also try to get as many attendees as possible--beginners included!--to play the same song at the same time. Godspeed, ladies. Aug. 24 at the Strathmore Music Center, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda. Phone: (301) 581-5100. Web: strathmore.org
