Got A Ukulele---A fun and comprehensive resource for everything UKULELE!
Imaginative and versatile, sometimes sublime and other times just plain "out there, "James Hill breaks the ukulele sound barrier. James seems to travel quite a bit from his home in Nova Scotia so if he's ever in your area, either appearing on stage or giving a workshop, you can not miss seeing him. He will absolutely turn your musical head around and you will never think of the ukulele in the same way again.
He's very entertaining, humorous, energetic and just seems to be a super nice guy. Always has time to stop and talk story for a bit. I only wish he spent more time in Hawaii.
