  1. Hello all!!
    I have just dropped by the site to say thank you very much for such a wonderful festival… I was blown away by the standard of the performers involved and have come home well and truly inspired to devote a little more time to ukulele (I also play guitar and keyboards).
    I was the lucky winner of the AMAZING handmade Mya-Moe $800 Ukulele! (yes- there was much jumping and squealing involved). I couldn’t be happier – it is such a breathtaking instrument and has a strong and clear tone, it’s simply a pleasure to play.
    Thank-you very much to the festival organisers who made it all possible and a shout out to Mya-Moe Ukulele’s for my incredible new uke!

  3. Indeed a fine festival it was.
    You may ask why.

    It was at the Tanks on the 4th of July.
    There I met my true love.
    Not a word of a lie.

    The Writer & Artist
    Bought together that day
    The inspiration of poetry and art renewed

    Still together today
    A happy home we do share
    With our Ukulele love you might say.
