Ukulele News - 9 Sept 2012

It's Sunday, so it must mean it's time for another round up the last weeks ukulele news from around the globe.



Thrilled with this one - Alan Love and the BCUPS are interviewed by James Naughtie on the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme about their performance today at the UK Bandstand Marathon as part of the closing of the Olympic games. Well done guys!

--------------------------------------

Yet another Etsy uke - the Jaws-alele

--------------------------------------

Nice intro to the Wine Country Ukulele Festival which is taking place this weekend in the Napa Valley.

-------------------------------------

Not sure what brought this about, but nice tribute to Two Ton Tessie

-------------------------------------

More ukes being put to good use - great stuff.

-------------------------------------

And something else I always like to see - more kids playing ukuleles. Love the lead photo too!

-------------------------------------

Delighted when I read this to learn that one of my heroes, David Byrne, played the ukulele when he was younger

-------------------------------------

Another musical hero - Dave Matthews - plus some sound samples of him on ukulele from their new album.



More news next week!
