Friday Links: Ukulele Coffee, Mushrooms and Severed Fingers

French luthier Rachel Rosenkrantz makes a ukulele out of mushrooms.

Somerset man plays ukulele to surgeons who saved his fingers.

A lecturer at UMASS has ditched the piano and is using the ukulele to teach music theory.

Possibly the most bizarre story I’ve ever seen in fifteen years of doing this: Colleen “MirandaSings” Ballinger responded to allegations of child grooming with a jaunty ten minute ukulele song. And of course I had to tab it.

Jake Shimabukuro has made the inevitable leap to selling ukulele-themed coffee.
