 “ We met over 1,000 uke players from all over the world to play from this years songbook.  It was a wonderful weekend, with lots of jamming and a chance to pick up some new skills at the various workshops.   We also watched an amazing variety of well-known performers from around the globe including The Mother Ukers, Craig Chee, Tomoko Sato, the phenomenal Taimane and the hilarious Hot Potato Syncopators.  There was a lot of Haloah-ing going on!”

“There’s something about guitars, they’re just so big, you know what I mean?
You’re just like, “Ugh!” Its just seems so overwhelming and the Ukulele is, like the opposite of overwhelming.”
