Hello my friends,

Just to announce you that Cyril Lefebvre passed away this morning.

He was a musician, an producer, an historian, a comedian, a concert organizer.
He introduced ukulele in France, he was "Mr Ukukulele" here.
He also was a great slide guitar player.
He made gigs and records with some of the greatests.

We all are very sad on this Easter sunday.

Greetings to all of you,

Antoine

I met the guy twice so i cant say i knew him, but ever since i started playing the uke, and meeting people and reading french forums
i have witnessed what he did for the ukulele in France and all over the world, and how much he will be missed in the ukulele world.


RIP

Condolences Antoine. Prayers sent. Thanks for the YouTube audio link to Cyril playing the resonator slide guitar. Cyril's music lives on through you and other musicians he's influenced. Ric

Wow, very talented. I'm surprised I never ran across his vids before. He'll be missed, for sure.

Well, I'm glad it wasn't you but am sorry for his friends and family - also sorry I never encountered his vids until now. Very talented guy.

Antoine,

Thank you very much for sharing this sad news. Cyril helped many people, even here in the United States, discover the joy of playing music.

His book, Ukulele: La Methode, is the one that helped me learn the most.

One of the highlights of my musical life was a visit to the Ukulele Hui in Paris in July 2010.

This is a sad loss. I hope you will take comfort in knowing that Cyril's contributions will live for many years to come.

-Josh
