Ukulele Is The New Black

Dec 1, 2019

Jenny Parenteau plays ukulele with The Loveys, a brilliant four-piece band from Mullumbimby in northern NSW.  I first heard them play at the Newkulele festival in 2018, and was thrilled to hear that they would be at SPRUKE this year.

I had a chat with Jenny in The Loveys’ dressing room backstage before their sound check for the Sunday afternoon performance.  There were other sound checks going on in the background while we talked, so enjoy the background music!
