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!
