More Warren Buffett uke coverage

Screen Shot 2013-08-08 at 3.31.24 PMA nice piece on omaha.com about the uke in Nebraska, and Nebraska’s beloved uke player Warren Buffett.

Speaking of which, how long until someone crunches the numbers and talks about the mean salary of uke players (significantly impacted by the Buffett outlier!)? I can see the “ukes make you richer” bumper stickers already…

Nice piece by Nathan Kruse on ukulele groups and ohana

8 08 2013

For those interested in academic understandings of the kinds of  uke playing similar to what the HUU pursues, the current issue of the Journal of Community Music contains a great piece by Nathan Kruse.

The article, “Without U, it’s Just Kelele” is available on the journal’s website. The journal is behind a paywall, although those in university communities may have access. Alternately, journals often provide the author the ability to share copies in some way, and you might just want to contact Professor KruseScreen Shot 2013-08-08 at 10.49.42 AM
