Pat Byrne of Greystones “Hotspot Ukes” has just sent us this video of the Hotspot Ukes doing a great version of “Brewing Up A Storm” which they just recorded as a single to raise funds for the Homeless at this very difficult and bitterly cold time of the year. Its a good cause, let’s support them.

Ukulele “Summer Vibe” – by Walk off the Earth (Original)

No matter what the weathers  like where you are, this is officially summer here in Ireland, (at least it was today!) so we’ve gotta have a summer  ukulele song  so how about this?  “Summer Vibe” by “Walk off the Earth”.

Walk off the Earth are a Canadian indie band formed in 2006 in Burlington, Ontario. The band’s cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” using only one guitar went viral in early 2012 and gained over 124 million hits onYouTube.
