New Ukulele Orchestra CDs and more Ukulele Links

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain have got two new CDs coming out this month: Live in London #1 and Christmas with the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. You can listen to extracts and pre-order them on their website.

The Jumping Flea Market is open for business and I’ve already bought myself some uke goodies. You can see their at the bottom of the post. (By the by, my username is ukulelehunt if you want to list me as the referrer).

I’m a PC. And I’m Jonathan Coulton. John Hodgman rips it up on the uke.

The MP3 blogs have some great uke action this week: Look at me, I made a blog has, Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti’s new band, Little Joy, linesthroughlines has Ingrid Michaelson’s Oh What a Day, Let Me Like It has Rachel Goodrich.

Who taught Queen Victoria to play the ukulele?

The Telegraph does a ho-hum, by-the-numbers article on the ukulele.

Friday time waste: Musipedia search for music by whistling into your computer. (Via Dr J.).

    Thanks for the link! Funny that you did, because I’ve been on this website every single day since I found out that I’m going to be an owner of a uke.

    Oh, I adore Rachel Goodrich! That Etsy shop is super neat, too.

    This week I found that Vogue UK has in its December issue (maybe?) a Roald Dahl inspired editorial and it has a couple of pictures that have a ukulele, this is the page I found it on:
