I went to an impromptu meetup with STRUM, Seattle’s Totally Relaxed Ukulele Musicians, on a recent visit to Seattle. I recorded some of the songs we played, and asked some of the members how ukulele has changed their lives. If you’re passing through Seattle I would highly recommend dropping in for a strum!
