London’s very own ukulele emporium. The Duke of Uke in Hanbury Street, E1 sells new and vintage ukulele’s, offers tuition and even has its own recording studio. Opened five years ago it is now threatened with closure as the landlord wants to move them on.
If you have ever wondered what a uke can do, then look no further than this fantastic clip of Joe Brown singing “I’ll see you in my Dreams” as the finale to the’ Concert for George’ at the Albert Hall. Yes that’s Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney giving Joe Brown centre stage.
