    I went to the NZ Uke Fest. James Hill stole the show, and was a sweetie in person. Led a wonderful all-ages workshop and demonstrated a good roll strum. Also a complete hottie; all the women I spoke to were drooling over him. The weather was equally hot, and I got far too much sun, but had a great time.

    Glad you enjoyed it, Mike. I’ve watched a few videos of it – wish I could have been there.

    James Hill came out on top in my own ‘sexiest uke player’ poll too.

Got something to say?
