We’ve been hearing anecdotally for a while that the ukulele is making a comeback but we wanted to be sure. So today we have the 4-piece ‘Ukeristic Congress’ here in studio to talk about and play ukuleles.
We also sent The Mooney Show’s Katriona McFadden to music shop McCullough Piggott in Dublin City Centre to see if the ukulele really is growing in popularity, Katriona met sales assistant Jamie Clark.
Well we have Keith White, Andrew Robinson, Shay Bagnall and James Quah here in studio AKA The ‘Ukeristic Congress’.
