Sharing this for a couple of reasons. First, I think Seth Lakeman is a bit of a genius - lucky enough to have seen him a couple of times and it's enthralling. Second reason is I do like to occasionally feature the close cousins of the ukulele on this site.
Wait a minute is he playing a ukulele or isn't he? Well, whilst it is four strings, and looks like a large Baritone, it's actually a Tenor Guitar. Seth is a fiddle player at heart, and the tuning of the tenor is linked to that. The tenor guitar is tuned CGDA, and the violin (and mandolin) is tuned GDAE, so it fits him perfectly.
So similar but different, but enough of that, just listen and enjoy.
