RIP Bill Tapia - Ukulele Legend

A sad day today, when I learned of the death of Ukulele Legend Bill Tapia.

Aged 103, Bill continued to play and perform until his death and was a complete legend in the ukulele world.  He was the subject of one of my ukulele heroes articles and will be sadly missed.

This video was for his 100th birthday concert.  Enjoy.


  1. I'm sorry to hear that Bill passed away. He brought a lot of joy to a lot of people.
