Sounding off

From Page 30 of the new Martin Guitar’s “The Sounding Board”….“Greg Hawkes helped to define the music of the 80s as keyboardist extraordinaire fron the groundbreaking band, the Cars. Greg is also a master of the ukulele and what better tool could be in his hands than on of the recntly reintroduced little koa gems-the top of the line 5K Martin Soprano uke. Greg’s ukulele technique is so adept that he’s been recording great new arrangements on his 5K. If we’re lucky, those tracks will be released in the near future.”

You can hear Greg trot out some of those chops at the next Ukulele Noir on September 25th at Johnny Ds in Somerville Mass.
