Ukulele News - 27 December 2011

Another round up of world ukulele news for this Christmas week!

The wonderful Joe Brown has put his own voice  to the current upsurge in ukulele popularity, pointing out that his truly splendid rendition of "See You In My Dreams" being a big part of the swing in popularity.  Plus he's recording a ukulele album!


I always like it when the major press interview a humble ukulele club, and this article from the Chicago Tribune does just that.


A nice interview on NPR (with transcript) with the virtuoso, Jake Shimabukuro


Amanda Palmer records Radioheads "Fake Plastic Trees" from a hotel bed for German TV show uMag.  Quite moving too.
