I agree. I've seen them live two years ago and I'm seeing them again in two weeks. They're playing at the Third International Ukulele Ceilidh in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Click here for details: ukulele.ca (http://ukulele.ca)

(sorry if this sounds like an ad, I'm just really excited)

Their videos are amazing! Music Educators in the US should take note of what our Canadian neighbors are doing with ukes in the classroom.

I want to know if there's a relationship with this ensemble and the Langley Schools Music Project (http://www.keyofz.com/langley/) of the mid-70's.

The disc came out a number of years back, but damn it's an amazing document. (Kind of like the P.S. 22 chorus (http://ps22chorus.blogspot.com/) on Youtube.)
