Essential Ukulele Records of 2014

How in the merry hell did it get to be November already? The year is fast disappearing and I’ve got a lot planned so here are my favourite ukulele albums and EPs of the year. Let me know what yours are in the comments. Note: for the purposes of this post “2014” refers to the […]

Bridal Chorus (Here Comes the Bride) on Ukulele

Ever since I put up this video of Wagner’s Bridal Chorus I’ve had a steady trickle of requests to play it at people’s weddings (not going to happen!) or for a recording they could use. I made a recording of it that I’ve been handing out and here it is: The Bridal Chorus – MP3 […]

Emily Scott: Interview

I included Emily Scott in my post about ukuleles at the Edinburgh Fringe mostly because I was intrigued by the idea of combining ukulele with a string quartet. After that, she got in touch and was kind enough to send a copy of her album, i write letters i never send, and I was blown […]

Shiny and the Spoon Interview

There’s a new Shiny and the Spoon album on the horizon (sign up for their mailing list to be alerted when it’s out). It features their hit cover of Take On Me, and Black Nag from Uke Hunt Podcast #8. I also threw a few questions in Amber Nash’s face: What can we expect from […]

Leftover Cuties: Austin Nicholsen Interview

The Leftover Cuties hit it big when Game Called Life was used as the theme tune to The Big C. Last week they released their debut album Place to Go (which they kindly sent me). If you liked Game Called Life, I highly recommend you pick it up. It’s the same winning combination of instant […]

Monday Exposure: Essential Craig Robertson

When they get round to writing the history of this ukulele revival Craig Robertson‘s name should be up there with Jake and IZ in importance. One thing’s for certain, if it hadn’t been for his involvement in Ukulelia and Ukulele Cosmos there wouldn’t have been a Uke Hunt. Craig’s just put all his albums up […]

Ukulele Video of the Year 2010: Manitoba Hal – Poulet Shack

It was a close run contest, but in the end Manitoba Hal won Ukulele Video of the Year 2010 with his funky blues of Poulet Shack from his latest album Huckster ( you can buy it on BandCamp, you can also get a ukulele songbook for it on his website). Rather than a huge gong […]

Annie Bacon’s Folk Opera: Monday Exposure

Writing a compelling story is a tricky task. Writing tunes that sound good from the first listen is a huge challenge. Doing both at once is near impossible. Perhaps that’s why there have been so few decent operas in the last century or two. But the challenge hasn’t stopped Annie Bacon picking up her ukulele […]

Dandylion: Monday Exposure

Dandylion – Hevin (MP3) Dandylion – Lady Grey (MP3) via On my wanders around the net I stumbled across a few mp3s from the former band of, Katzenjammer ukestress, Marianne Sveen (and, no, I wasn’t looking for compromising pictures and any server logs you find that suggest otherwise are forged). They’re not quite as […]

Cory McAbee: Interview

Because of the amount of money and people it takes to make a film, it’s very rare you get someone who is willing to try completely new ways of doing things. Cory McAbee‘s latest film, Stingray Sam, is made up of six 11 minute episodes, designed to be watched on mobile phones as well as […]
