Playing for Afghan Refugees

An unnamed U.S. Airforce Airman brought out his ukulele to entertain children and adults from Afghanistan at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. I wonder what he played. Link

If anyone runs across the name of this Airman, please send a comment and I'll post it.

Meet Covie

Ok. I've been sitting on this one for a while. It got shuffled to the bottom of a pile of to-dos, and then I thought (hoped?) that it wouldn't be relevant anymore. Sadly...

So, meet Covie. Created by my friend and uker, Jon Soto, and several of his advertising pals to help remind people to wear a mask, maintain social distance, and wash their hands. 

Covie has a theme song, featured in the video. Heck, he has a whole YouTube channel where you can follow his travels. 

If you'd like to sing along, write your own verses, post your own videos, I know you'd make Covie happy (and Jon would appreciate it). Here's the music:

Visit Covie's site for more info and goodies, including stickers you can download. Be like Covie and spread them around. Follow Covie on Instagram, too.

A New Old Saying

"There’s another old saying: It’s all over but the ukulele." Link

Meet Sayali Tank

I was honored to mentor Sayali Tank during her first year with the James Hill Ukulele Initiative program. She's a delightful person and it was fun to stay up late in California (while she got up early in India) for our Zoom meetings over the past year. She's now a featured Kala artist. See what working with me can do for you?!  Link
