    I own a Lyon & Healy c. 1925 uke, found on eBay. It’s a nice piece of wall art, not really playable. The action is unfixable. Sad, really. It would have been a fun novelty instrument.

    Chicago Music Exchange.
    Didn't really see him play the uke.
    Well worth a watch.
    He played piano in the series Wooster and Jeeves. Great Comedy.

    Oh, I love this series. And after watching it I started listening to Hugh Laurie and watching other films/tv shows with him. Btw, I enjoyed A Bit of Fry and Laurie. Great show.

    I'm kinda weirdly fond of the song St. James Infirmary. I feel like it sounds good on any instrument and in a range of moods and styles (admittedly mostly jazz/jazz-adjacent). I have a YouTube playlist with 29 versions, but Hugh Laurie on piano is one of the best.

    They made some wonderful mandolins as well.
