Ukulele News - 23 July 2012

My weekly news roundups usually come on a Sunday, but yesterday was about the only sunny weekend day we have had in months so I spent the day out in the canoe with my daughter! So, a day late, lets take a look at what has been happening around the uke world.

Nice photo slide show from the 42nd Annual Ukulele Festival in Waikiki


Ukulele Players - an Anthropological Study


This journalist SO wanted to use the headline YOUNG TEACHES OLD but thought better of it.


Dent ditches his ukulele - says he is 'sick of it'....


Thankfully Beirut haven't though

More news next week!


  1. Barry, good to see you place family over uke biz...hope both of your "gifts" are happy and well adjusted. keep up the hard work, and keep uke's in the forefront of happiness...thanks for all the good suggestions in the books.

  2. I would love it when I die if people say, "hey look the Ukulele guy died". Nothing like ticking off your fans. Dent will be lucky if he has any fans after that interview.
