The Ukulele is Making a Huge Comeback!
Zooey Deschanel, 7th Heaven, Tony Blair, Train, Eddie Vedder, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are just a few celebrities who have been spotted strumming a uke. Festivals from SXSW to the Yorkshire Dales Ukulele Weekender celebrate this compact wonder. Available in many colors, shapes and styles, the affordable little ukulele is fun for all ages, and a particularly good instrument for novices.
