Seattle Castaways, Quiet American: UkeTube

Don’t forget to make your nominations for your favourite videos of 2012. This is part two of the holiday roundup, so a few of these are eligible for nominations including Blue Dean Carcione doing a track from his new album and Dennis Schütze’s playing of Handel. Other’s you’ll have to make a note for like […]

Oona Libens Trio, Catey Shaw: UkeTube

A whole shed-ton of great ukulele videos since the last UkeTube. So many I’ve had to divide them up between this week and next. The first instalment includes Ukulelezaza’s band the Oona Libens Trio, a track from Jake Wildwood’s new album (his best yet – download it), a track from Celisse Henderson’s live EP, apartment-hopper […]

Christmas UkeTube

The traditional Christmas line-up with a few additions. Including the UOGB and Mariah Carey. If you’re not sick of Christmas music after this there’s a Ukulele Christmas Spotify playlist here. And some excellent free/pay-what-you-like stuff from Fox and the Hound and Ballard C Boyd. If you are sick of Christmas music I don’t blame you […]

Elizabeth Mitchell, David Byrne: UkeTube

The first video this week is Elizabeth Mitchell from the must-subscribe Smithsonian Folkways channel. It’s full to bursting with great performances and mini-documentaries like Wu Man investigating music from China’s borderlands, the African diaspora in the US, Grupo Cimarrón from Columbia and Ella Jenkins playing bari for the class. Lots of old friends this week […]

Dreamland Faces, Bosko & Honey: UkeTube

Videos this week include Ukulollo hooking up with Craig Chee and his cello, a live song from Bosko and Honey, the Dreamland Faces and plenty more besides. In unrelated news: Amazon UK is selling my book Ukulele for Dummies for a super cheap £6.40 at the moment. That’s 40% of the sticker price (and less […]

Eddie Vedder, Ali Ingle: UkeTube

New video from Eddie Vedder’s Ukulele Songs with a trip to the Kanile’a factory. There aren’t may people that can match vocals with Vedder but Ali Ingle sounds just as great. Also up this week are some Halloweeny videos from Craig Robertson and Holland Greco, ridiculousness from Sid Laverants and Walk off of the Earth […]

Keston Cobblers’ Club: UkeTube

I absolutely love Keston Cobblers’ Club’s new album One, for Words. It’s the best British album of the year. (This one would have been close if the second half was as good as the first.) The Cobblers kick off this week’s selection looking much better dressed than usual in a session for Burberry. Joining them […]

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
