Ukulele groups in Japan: Toyama ukulele welcome party

4 10 2014

Here’s a few photos and some video from Toyama, Japan. The end of the video includes a local luthier’s soprano ukulele, a beautiful design with exemplary craftsmanship. The event also has a website (in Japanese, but featuring photos from previous years): http://ukupartoyama.wix.com/ukupar

It’s great to find so many wonderful ukulele clubs sharing music together in one place.

I thought there might be a group play-along, but instead was invited to do a solo song. I shared a half-remembered version of a favorite tune, “Salty Dog.” There was a professional group recording, and here it is:
