Please consider becoming one of my patrons - you can do this for as little as $2 per month. Higher tiers will give you benefits such as a green decal for your ukulele case, your name in the show notes, or if you go for the Ukulele Legend level you can ask me to record a cover of a song of your choosing, as Linda Dodwell did! This song has been available to all my patrons since I posted it in July, but today I’m sharing it with all of you in this bonus episode. I hope you enjoy it!

How Ukulele Changed our Lives in 2019

This episode is a celebration of all those people I talked to in 2019. Every one of them told me how ukulele had changed their life, and I’ve put all those reasons together in one place. I’ve scored this episode with a lot of music featuring ukulele. Most of it was recorded specifically for this episode with the help of my friends, but there are a few songs which I recorded during 2019, including one live performance.

David "Snapper" Thiele

EIf you listened to the episode earlier this year where I talked to Dave Parker of The Nukes, you may have been wondering about this guy called Snapper we kept talking about. Well wonder no more, because here he is!

Jenny Parenteau

Jenny Parenteau plays ukulele with The Loveys, a brilliant four-piece band from Mullumbimby in northern NSW. I first heard them play at the Newkulele festival in 2018, and was thrilled to hear that they would be at SPRUKE this year. I had a chat with Jenny in The Loveys’ dressing room backstage before their sound check for the Sunday afternoon performance. There were other sound checks going on in the background while we talked, so enjoy the background music!

Ian Porter

This is the second episode recorded at the Brisbane SPRUKE ukulele festival in September. If you listened to my previous episode with Ruth Allen, you would have heard her talk about Ian Porter. Well, here he is in today’s episode! Ian is an accomplished player and teacher of ukulele and I really enjoyed my chat with him. I think you will too!

Ruth Allen

I recently went to the SPRUKE ukulele festival in Brisbane, where I caught up with Ruth Allen, leader of the Port Macquarie Ukestra. If you don’t know what a Ukestra is, go back and listen to the episode I recorded last year with Mark Jackson and Jane Jelbart. Not only does Ruth lead the ukestra, she is also a James Hill accredited ukulele teacher, and a very entertaining performer!

David Megaritty

Back in February, I recorded a live episode at the Gang Gang Twang festival in Canberra featuring David Megarrity and Samuel Vincent, otherwise known as Tyrone and Lesley. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to release that episode due to issues with the sound quality, but I recently caught up with David at his home in Brisbane.

The Wild Women of Anywhere Beach

Today’s episode is the last of three which I recorded at the 2019 Central Coast Ukulele and Folk Festival. Cathy Welsford and Angie Smith are the Wild Women of Anywhere Beach, an incredibly talented duo who frequently perform, run workshops, and write fantastic songs. I really enjoyed my chat with these two! The music played in this episode is licenced under a Podcasts (Featured Music) agreement with APRA AMCOS.

Ohana

Today’s episode was recorded at the Central Coast Ukulele and Folk Festival. Normally when I go to a festival I organise all my interviews in advance, but when I heard Ohana playing at the festival on the Saturday morning I was impressed, and hit them up for an interview as soon as they finished their set. Fortunately, Adam and Lea were up for it! The music played in this episode is licenced under a Podcasts (Featured Music) agreement with APRA AMCOS.
