Steven Tyler and His Carry-on Uke

Not just any uke. A cigar box resonator. If you want to be inconspicuous, Steven, stick with a Red Mahalo. (Anyone know the maker?) Link

A Last Hurrah with Tippy Canoe

Michele Kappel-Stone writes: 

I'm not sure if you knew this, but I retired (alter ukulele ego) Tippy Canoe last June as a performing act and stopped teaching back in the Fall. 
By special request I'm doing one last hurrah for Tippy on Tuesday, March 26 at an Art Beat Foundation (Oakland, CA) hosted reading and signing for Seattle author Andrea Savar. 
Here's the link to the Facebook Event page with the full details: 
I know what you're thinking, "how can we miss her, if she won't go away?" 
I'm doing a set by special request of the author and really don't have any plans to pick things back up since I've moved on to other bands. 
Andrea was inspired to write her book after visiting her old hometown of Pt. Townsend, WA when accompanying my friend Antonette G and I there on tour, so we're revisiting the magic of that time and sharing this wonderful book with the Bay Area. It'd be great to see some uke friendly faces in the crowd.
