In an article today (Feb. 23) about Bluegrass Revival in Bowling Green, KY. there was mention of people looking for ukuleles. This in turn leads us to a great song, but first the article’s notice of the ukulele.
“At the Tone Shop on Fairview Avenue, owner Derrick Young said he has not noticed a boost in general bluegrass sales, but one instrument has sparked a lot of recent attention.
“It’s been crazy this past week — several people have come in looking for ukuleles,” he said. “Even little, young girls are looking for ukuleles. That’s thrown me off a little bit.”
Young said sometimes, when an instrument is featured in a popular song or movie, it creates interest. For example, a new song by the band Train features the ukulele, which could be the root of the current demand.”
Hmmm. I wonder if it is just Train. Do you think it could be more than that? Of course it is. The UP attitude continues to grow. UP = Ukulele Perspective.
