A bumper crop of YouTube videos this week. It was tough narrowing it down.
Wilfried Welti – Elspeth of Nottingham
Welti plays with a restraint and clarity that’s rarely seen on the uke – suiting the classical pieces perfectly. You can download some of his tabs and mp3s here
Jake Shimabukuro – Orange World
This isnt’ the first time this clip has been uploaded but it’s well worth watching again.
TT Cafe – In The Mood
A battle between uke and accordion complete with Angus Young/Arnold Schwarzenegger style heal kicks.
Ukulelezaza – Rockin’ The Uke
It’s heartening to see Uke Fest spreading around the world. This week has seen clips uploaded from the Swedish Ukulele Festival (featuring an impressive young banjo-uker) and the Ukulele Festival of Belgium (from which this tasty piece of strummery comes).
