UkeTube: Erin Lang, Dent May, The Half Sisters

This favourite new find of the week is The Half Sisters who make up for a load of girly jaw-flapping and squeeing with a couple of great songs and plenty of Peggy Sue style shounting (shouting + counting = shounting).

And, of course, there’s love in the air for Ukulele Ike’s dogs and Ukulelezo’s insect people while Erin Lang gets the best Valentines gift ever.

    Ah man! “Throw me in the river” from Neal Plaisley blew me away

    Neal Paisley is awesome.

    Great selection of new people to me. Marvellous playing/singing. I found the Dent may video hypnotic/good.

    As usual, a very good selection there ! I especially liked Neil Paisley and gawasiman as well as KrRrk.

    Rawuke – that’s nice! But where’d you get that Sopranino ukulele? It sounds like a steel-string. Is is a braguinha?

    Ukelelezo has a way with me. Winterpop sounding with that amazing descending chord prog!

    Sharpen: There seem to be a few around now. Ohana make them. So do Tangi.

    Fraukje, Paul and Armelle: I’ve got a tab of Neal’s Gossip coming up this week and Throw Me in the River is definitely on the to do list as well.

    RogerB: His album is well worth checking out.

    Bartt: I don’t think it’s steel string. You can get a better look at it in the second half of this video.

    OLPandW: I agree. I really like what she’s doing with the chords in that one.

Got something to say?
