Much like the current Dr. Who has made bowties cool again, Suddenly Ukuleles seem to suddenly be everywhere. Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls) recently released an amazing album of Radiohead covers, all done on the Ukulele and now Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam) has released his own album of Ukulele Ditties. Add Mumford & Sons and The Avett Bros. occasional use and there seems to be a trend. Based on two people with such high levels of coolness, plus two very buzz-worthy new bands, I hereby declare that Ukulele’s are cool.
Any other Ukulele gems out there i should know about?
