Ukulele – June

In mid-to-late 1950s Britain, we experienced a fairly brief period of Skiffle music. Many will remember this as a kind of uptempo folk/jazz, often incorporating improvised instruments. Although none of us could provide a washboard or tea-chest, we enjoyed our ukulele skiffle session, often involving songs about trains. Our other May session, inspired by the Royal Wedding, was devoted to love songs. Have uke, be happy.
