Friday Links: Kitty Lux

Founding member of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, Kitty Lux has died at the age of 59. Kitty made a huge contribution to the ukulele world and the current scene wouldn’t be the same without her. I’m sure all ukers will join me in sending love to her family and to her bandmates.

    Hard to believe Kitty’s gone. Thanks for putting her in the headline.

    Being in on the founding of an organization that has not seen its equal in over three decades is no small accomplishment, Al.

    Rest in Peace, Ukulele Lady.

    Really sad to hear this, I started my love affair with Ukulele upon hearing these guys on british TV. RIP Uke star!
