The Oregon Ukulele Trail

California gets a lot of notice for being a hotbed of ukedom these days. Maybe it's because both Mark and I live on the left coast, but you can't ignore the sheer numbers of players in the Golden State. Our neighbor to the north, however, has a thriving uke community, too. Might be all the rain. Or maybe because Lyle Ritz calls Portland home.

Depending on where you are in Oregon, there's probably a uke group for you. Here are a few that I've turned up (drop me a note if you know of more!):

Salem (OR) Ukulele Strummers Association
Portland (OR) Ukulele Association
Ukeniks (Bend, OR)
Ukulaneys (Eugene, OR)
