Monday Exposure: Ukulele Bartt

I don’t think there’s anyone who looks like they’re enjoying playing the uke more than Ukulele Bartt. And it’s highly infectious – I get an urge to pick up the uke every time I see him play. Particularly when he’s shredding the crap out of some flamenco ukulele. Bartt has just released a new album, […]

James Hill – True Love Don’t Weep: Interview

James Hill’s long awaited new album True Love Don’t Weep is out tomorrow. It’s a collaboration between him and his partner, dancing cellist, Anne Davison.

In honour of that fact, this week is dedicated to the WIUO kicking off with and interview […]
