I am a local ukulele performer and teacher, and have played the uke for over 55 years. I have a wide range of styles and materials I perform and teach.
As a solo uke performer, at various venues from the Gershwin Hotel in NYC to local senior centers, I play music from Leon Redbone to Jimmy Buffett to Allan Sherman and more. Even though I am primarily a bari player, I never travel with only one uke because as Fred Fallin says, “each one has a different voice” which adds it’s own flavor to any song.
I have to give most of the credit to Uncle Tony, my teacher and mentor. Without him, I would have never been introduced to such an amazing instrument!
