Ledward Kaapana, Valerie June: UkeTube

Hard to hear the music this week over all the names being dropped. Namecheckees – in descending order of awesome – include: blues-ukulelist Little Laura Dukes, God-child Jesus, particle-botherer Brian Cox and dog-judger Stacey Solomon. Full Playlist

Laura Marling, Glen Hansard: UkeTube

Incredibly Serious Warning: There are two songs here made famous by Maroon 5. For any of you brave enough to continue, this week has a great new song from Laura Marling (bet you can’t guess what make of ukulele she’s playing). Also, off of Once, Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová in separate videos. And two […]

Jim Boggia, Awna Teixeira: UkeTube

Up this week: Jim Boggia’s tribute to Hal David, Awna “off of Po’ Girl” Teixeira, Michelle Blades and plenty more. Full Playlist

In this week’s line up: electronic grave-wave sensation Grimes (with whom I share a taste in food), Allo Darlin’ pay tribute to Neil Armstrong, Jake Shimabukuro, Victoria Vox’s new duo, LP does another in her cover series and plenty more. Full Playlist

Wilfried Welti, Where Are All The Buffalo?: UkeTube

I haven’t been paying as much attention as usual so this week’s video roundup is a bit shorter than usual. If you’ve seen any videos I should know about leave them in the comments. But among the videos I did find is one by the ever excellent Wilfried Welti. He’s just released three new e-books […]

Walk off the Earth, Scott Avett: UkeTube

It’s not often I repost the same song from the same band. But it’s happened twice this week with Shiny and the Spoon reprising their cover of A-ha and Keston Cobblers’ Club. Also on the list is Scott Avett with a horrible ukulele, Walk off the Earth tossing around a Flea banjolele (head to 2:54 […]

Ukulollo, Origamibiro: UkeTube

Lots of good stuff to choose from for this one. I had to be quite ruthless with my choices to keep the list to a reasonable length. If you want to influence what gets included on here do rate the videos I post on UkeToob. I always check the ratings before I put together the […]

Mike Love: UkeTube

As well as the usual bedroom strumming, this week’s post includes LP at the Grammy museum, Mike Love in Ko’olau’s shop and Ryegrass stood in their bathtub. Full Playlist

Cuatro: The Ukulele’s Venezuelan Cousin

I’m always keen to check out what musicians are doing on their instruments to see what I can incorporate into my uke playing. It’s easiest to integrate techniques used on instruments similar to the ukulele such as the ukulele’s Madeiran forebears and, the subject of this post, the Venezuelan cuatro. Full Playlist The Venezuelan cuatro […]

Royal Boudoir Orchestra, Jontom: UkeTube

Some superstar guest appearances this week: Jontom is joined by Hawaiian guitar slinger Jeff Peterson, Ashton Kutcher provides bass for Snorri Helgason and Amanda Shires is backed by House. Full Playlist
