Friday Links: Art on a Postcard, Irish Tunes

Jonathan Lewis launched his excellent and challenging ebook Irish Tunes for Campanella Ukulele a couple of years ago with a guest post about campanella ukulele. It was well worth a buy then and he’s been adding to it since and he’s just updated to the final version which includes 40 tunes (16 jigs, 11 reels, 7 hornpipes, 2 polkas and 4 pieces by O’Carolan).

Art on a Ukulele is a new project from Art on a Postcard which raises money for The Hepatitis C Trust. Thirty artists headed by Mick Rooney will be painting 30 ukuleles. Eight of which are made by Pete Howlett and will be used in a special performance by the UOGB. You can sign up for their mailing list to keep up to date with it and with Kev Munday’s art on a plectrum. UPDATE: The campaign us up now.
