Show Notes

Exploring the ukulele this week.

Featuring

We’ll listen to some of the styles that work for the uke, and some of the ways that folks employ it. Blues, jazz, reggae, calypso, folk songs, cowboy, swing – it all seems to work! We’ll finish with highlights from the Portland Ukulele Extravaganza, a concert held in Portland OR in 2013.

Most Crackin the Vault shows will be available on the new Centrum podcast channel:
