Ukulele Is The New Black

Oct 25, 2020

Samantha Muir is a classically trained musician who had a passion for guitar from an early age.  In 2012 she discovered the ukulele and fell in love with it.  Since then she has arranged and composed a huge body of instrumental pieces for ukulele, with a focus on classical and folk music.  She talks to me in today’s episode about her musical journey which also includes teaching music, publishing books and CDs, and playing the machete.

For more information about Sam, or to buy her books and CDs (hurry now to get them in time for Christmas!) go to, and also don’t forget to look up her YouTube channel, SamMuir Ukulele.
