Ukulele Is The New Black

Nov 17, 2019

This is the second episode recorded at the Brisbane SPRUKE ukulele festival in September.  If you listened to my previous episode with Ruth Allen, you would have heard her talk about Ian Porter.  Well, here he is in today’s episode!

Ian is an accomplished player and teacher of ukulele and I really enjoyed my chat with him.  I think you will too!
