I listen to Pandora while I'm on the computer, either Hawaiian or George Formby. If you haven't heard Ledward Ka'apana play, you've been missing something. He seems to play guitar more than uke, but here he is with Bob Bozman, with resonator uke and guitar.

Led is an incredible player on both instruments. I'm not even a particularly big fan of Hawaiian music but he is amazing. I have quite a bit of his guitar music in playlists on my Apple Music account.

Yep, Led is something else. He taught me to respect Hawaiian music a lot more.
Have you ever seen him play his M-B uke?
Wow.

M-B uke? I've seen him play uke but not sure which one.

If you happen to find yourself in Maui, on a Weds night with nothing to do, at the Napili Kai resort Gerorge Kohanamouku (sp?) hosts a Hawaiian Slack Guitar show, with a line up of stellar rotating guests. Led is frequent flier there, and the "unknown" side musicians who show up to play uke and classical are well worth the time.
