Eddie Vedder’s Uke Songs: Friday Links

Eddie Vedder’s much rumoured ukulele album is to be called Uke Songs and you can listen to the first single, Longing to Belong, here.

Ukulele for Dummies is available for pre-order on Amazon US.

If you haven’t picked up your copy of Bosko and Honey’s Ukulele Safari CD, now’s the time to buy it. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross Australia Japan & Pacific Disaster 2011 Appeal.

Comedy ukers Jen Kwok, Ben Lerman and Jessica Delfino have got together to perform an all-music comedy showcase in NYC.

I’ve added a few more luthiers to the review section including J C Clark who made this lovely soprano Shrine copy, Eddie Vedder and Kimo Hussey favourite DeVine, and Lichty who answered a few questions for me.

For some reason, the number of requests has exploded recently. Unfortunately, I get way more requests than I can do. I’m always happy to receive suggestions and requests from regular commenters.
