Upwood Ukuleles Christmas Video 2023 - Walking in the Air

My friend and fellow JHUI Mentor Carol Hudson shared this amazing Christmas Video with me. 

Featuring the members of Upwood Ukuleles from Cambridgeshire, UK, and produced by Tim "Tim'll Fix It" Howard, the video features the ensemble performing Walking in the Air, from the 1982 animated holiday classic The Snowman.

Upwood Ukuleles' designated charity is Magpas Air Ambulance. Thus far, they've raised almost £66,000! Well done!

If you'd like to donate to Magpas Air Ambulance on behalf of Upwood Ukuleles, here's a link.

Arlo Claus: Updated

A dashing Arlo Guthrie wishing everyone Happy Holidays!

h/t to Howlin’ Hobbit for identifying the instrument as a Pegasus. 

Here’s an update from Arlo:

 The holiday instrument of choice. Concert is between a soprano and a tenor size ukulele. This one was made by Pegasus Bob on the big island of Hawaii. Bob said he'd used some special koa wood he'd been saving. I was thrilled.
