I listened to them this morning on my way to church . . . It was almost as good as a sermon!! and easier to listen to than some of the sermons I've heard over the years!!

BTW, I've played my uke in church a time or three, it's rather popular with our choir!

Their harmonies are flawless, the simplicity of ukulele arrangements make a perfect pairing with the vocals. The result is completely engaging.

This is the musical time period that made me want to play ukulele. The songs from the 20s and 30s are wonderfully clever, deliciously sentimental and often hilarious. I played old style country music for years on the guitar and upright bass and didn't get too far beyond I - VI - V chord progressions. These old songs and the ukulele have introduced me to a world of jazz chords that I would never have tried on 6 strings. Glad to see that the Kentucky Sisters are spreading the joy!

Thanks for posting!!
