Well the world is a scary place at the moment – I got home from my shorter-than-expected overseas trip a week ago, and have been at home in self-isolation since then. Fortunately I have plenty of interviews recorded, so I will be able to continue to take your mind off things with more chats with ukulele players over the next few months.
Today’s episode is the final one recorded at the Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival back in February, this time with Chantelle Riordan, otherwise known as Chantelle & Uke. Chantelle is a percussionist who discovered the joy of the little stringed instrument and is now firmly hooked.
