    Brian Hefferan has long been a favorite. adding in Lil Rev doesn’t hurt a bit now, does it?

    this week’s “too sexy! a bottle of the house’s finest” award goes to Jelena Petoševi.

    lastly, the “HH loves the hell out of this” award goes to Sarah King and the Smoke Rings.

    (honorable mention to My Brightest Diamond for the fabulous audience participation.)

    Lil Rev and Brian Hefferan are it for me, too. A nice tune and two ukes played well, what more can you ask for? Jelena Petoševi has also something (strange?) in her song and video I like. Good selection again.

    Hobbit: Rev and Brian sound great together. It’s the perfect match. Thanks for spreading the word about Sarah King.

    George: Fail.

    Captain: Those two have done a few videos together – all of them excellent.

    A good selection this week. I particularly liked Boulder Acoustic Society, Lil Rev/Brian Hefferan and a great live version from The Burning Hell

    Great line-up.
    I reall enjoyed the boulder acoustic society, I like the folk-rock sound thing that they have going on on that track. Burning hell I will be looking into a little more, I like! Also Sarah King was very enjoyable.
    Lastly, its amazing the way Mya Moe ukes seem to be popping up all over the shop, or is that just me?

    Cheers -F

    BAS kicks ass!

    Loved St. James

    Sarah King sounds sweet. Love the coo-coo clock.

    Jelena sounds great, looks fine & shot a nice video. What can I say, I’m a baritone man!

    I think Sarah A. is trying to drop that guy a hint…

    Really like the Boulder Acoustic Society, Lil Rev & Brian Hefferan’s song (but not Rev’s lack of proper attire, put a shirt on sir!) and Sarah Amelia Armstrong’s friend’s all too brief display of interest in what she’s doing.

  12. Woodshed August 30th, 2011 12:03 pm

    Cappers: Glad you enjoyed.

    Foinnse: That crossed my mind this week as well. I wonder how many they give away.

    sharp21 and Al: I couldn’t work out if that guy in the Sarah A video was for real or if it was some sort of performance.

    sarah: Thanks very much for making it.

    Boulder Acoustic Society and excellent and I really love My Brightest Diamond. I’ve never heard of her before. So beautiful.

    Great selection of videos this week! I agree that the rendition of The Burning Hell’s “I Love the Things That People Make” is awesome. Also, anything with a couple good ukuleles is all right by me :)

  15. Woodshed September 7th, 2011 7:51 am

    aimee: I only came across her recently too.

    Coverking: I think I’ll have to write that song up. I love it.

    Rev &Heff great! Burning Hell great! Sarah King great! Brightest Diamond really grew on me as I listened, Serbian ukulele can be very sexy.

    Rob: And also some obliging breezes in Serbia.
