I’ve started on the 2014 Ukulele Spotify Playlist. It’s short at the moment so if you want more here’s the 2013 list.

Kickstarting

Ukes and Music to Pasajquim – a project to provide ukuleles for a remote Mayan community in Guatemala.

Wallet Looseners

Caravan Gogh’s The 3 Faces of Steve featuring the ukulele stylings of Jim D’Ville
Sounds from the Empty City by David Megarrity who you may recognise as half of Tyrone and Lesley. But this record is very different. It’s an atmospheric, instrumental album and it’s gorgeous.
Ukulele Hangers made with parachute chord.
– Ewan Wardrop (he of In Da Club Formby parody is touring the UK with his Formby show

Pictures
