Here's a video someone shot of me playing open mic at the first-ever Rocket City Ukulele Festival in Huntsville, AL, on 5-May-2018. I was using my KoAloha Tenor and Kala Baritone ukes.


Hey, I'm a ukulele player. Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't sing! :cool:

Hey Steven
Great songs choice especially AF. Love that song.
The person video taped you must have a long range mic. It sounds clear from such far distance!
You have good vocal , I like the fingers picking at the beginning too!
Wish you were performing when I was in Nashville!

Kudos - nice job! And I never knew Ashokan Farewell had lyrics, despite having heard dozens of different instrumental versions. That's my one new thing learned today. ;)

Here's another song I did at a recent open mic night.


I had a couple of mental lapses, but kept on going and folks seemed to like it! :cool:
