Matthew J Richards Plays His Banjo Ukes

I love this little video where Matthew compares the sounds of 4 different vintage banjo ukes in his collection. Such a lovely instrument! Thanks Matthew!

Fantastic. It's good to see unique creations get the appreciation they deserve.
Speaking of ukes, did you catch Zee Avi
on Studio 360, by any chance? More neat uke playing.

Still speaking of ukes, here's a photo I thought you might like of a uke book made by a student at Columbia College Chicago in the Book and Paper Arts program.

My final uke comment of the day is, "You can go here
and hear E Huli Makou.
It is a fun song. Lanialoha Lee taught it to us in five minutes and had fifty people strumming and singing. Good fun.
