New Releases
– Debut solo record from Tobias Elof: Ukulele Meditation. As the title suggests, it’s more contemplative than his usual rapid-fire playing. But a very beautiful album.
Tasty Ukulele Songs by Crispy Jones

Videos
– The excellent PBS/BBC series American Epic (covering the earliest folk and roots music of the USA) has included some excellent performances by modern artists. Notably The Hawaiians covering Tomi Tomi after the legendary Sol K Bright version.
The Bandrum: A New Folk Instrument Kickstarter Video: made for banjo but would be effective on ukulele too.
