Girls on the Pull, Vanilla Ice: Friday Links

I’m sure I’m not the only one who cringes whenever they hear unimaginative use of ukuleles on TV. So Rob Manning’s score for Channel 4’s Girls on the Pull a refreshing change (if you’re unfamiliar with 4’s naming tactics it’s a documentary about compulsive hair-pulling).

Makers of the film The Descendants attempt to bribe Oscar judges with a ukulele. Although Brett McKenzie is the true uker’s choice for an Oscar.

The Ukes for UNICEF festival takes place in Berkhamsted (UK) on the 3rd March and features Uke Hunt friends Ken Middleton and Krabbers and plenty more.
