S4E14 - Meredith Harper
I promised you a special guest for the last episode – surprise, it’s me!!  I figured my story was long overdue so I asked my friend and fellow ukulele podcaster Cameron Murray to interview me.  It was a bit weird to be on the other side of the microphone but I really enjoyed it.  I play a couple of songs, including a new original. I wasn’t entirely happy with either performance and I could have re-recorded them, but that felt like cheating so you’re stuck with what I played on the day, warts and all!  Some show-related links below: Sydney Conservatorium of Music The Canberra Times Sunday Assembly Martin backpacker guitar The Green Shed Mahalo ukulele Kala ukulele Michael Rosenberg Ukulele Republic of Canberra Central Coast Ukulele Festival Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival Ohana Rebecca Sugar Steven Universe KoAloha Jonathan Coulton Joco Cruise Enya Music The Bec Taylor School of Music Ukulele Festival Hawaii Kamaka Ukuleles Podcasts I mentioned: Answer Me This Stuff You Should know The West Wing weekly Veronica Mars Investigations Buffering the Vampire Slayer The Chaser A Rational Fear The Amelia Project Episodes I mentioned: Michael Rosenberg Mark Jackson & Jane Jelbart David “Snapper” Thiele Cameron Murray Alan & Paul Okami Songs played on the show: If You Could Read My Mind (Gordon Lightfoot, 1970) One Heart is Enough (Meredith Harper) Go to the Ukulele is the New Black YouTube channel for a playlist of songs relating to today’s episode.

It’s taken me four years to get her on the show but I finally did it!  Today I chat to my great friend and musical collaborator Jasmine Fellows.  Jas is a multi-instrumentalist who I originally met through Canberra ukulele groups, but who has now become an irreplaceable member of house band The New Black, and our ukulele and cello duo Four Strings Two.  We had a great time recording this - I think I cut out at least ten minutes of giggling in the edit!  Please enjoy.

S4E12 - Jim Croft
Today’s guest is one of the members of the Ukulele is the New Black house band – Jim Croft.  I’ve been wanting to get him on the show for some time, but because I know he’s not really a fan of the limelight I didn’t approach him – until now!  Fortunately he said yes, and we had a great chat about experimenting with different tunings, the importance of music theory, and his extensive ukulele collection.  Please enjoy!

In this episode I talk to Barbara Taylor, a dynamic ukulele player and organiser from Busselton in Western Australia.  Barbara has been on my list since previous guest Kevin Chennell mentioned her, and I’m so glad I finally caught up with her, because she is a delight. Oh and Barbara mentions my cat curtains, which were pretty hard to miss when I talked to her over Zoom.  If you want to see them, here’s a picture.  They are wonderfully tacky and you won’t be disappointed!

BONUS - Life is a Musical
Today I have a bonus episode for you.  If you’ve been listening to my recent episodes you will know that I have been going through a long and painful process of moving house, and as a result I haven’t been able to find the time to make new episodes.  Today I bring you something which is new, but a little different.  I’m going to tell you about some of the challenges I’ve been facing, and how music – or specifically, musicians – brought me an incredible moment of light and joy.

CLASSIC EPISODE - Mal Webb
Sorry listeners - I am still in the fun process of moving house, and when this comes out the removalist will be arriving to take all my possessions from my current home.  I will be spending a couple of weeks in an Airbnb before I can move into the new place, so hopefully I will have the time to make an original episode for next time. This is another of my favourites from season 1, with Mal Webb - a ukulele player and multi-instrumentalist who was a source of both fun and inspiration for me.  I hope you enjoy it! ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES: Mal Webb describes himself as a “vocal adventurer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist”, and I can’t think of a better description.  I hope you enjoy his vocal adventures as much as I did! Mal plays one of his songs, “TLA”.  This episode was recorded at the Newkulele Festival, including a small excerpt from Mal’s ukulooping workshop.  More information about Mal and his workshops can be found on his website. Mal mentions a few interesting instruments: the Zimbabwean thumb piano and African udu drums.  And despite being from Melbourne, he refers to some Canberra things: TUGS ukulele group and Questacon. He also mentions a band he and his partner Kylie play in, which has the BEST BAND NAME EVER: Formidable Vegetable Sound System.

CLASSIC EPISODE: Jane Jelbart and Mark Jackson
Hi listeners!  Life is a bit frantic for me at the moment – I’ve sold my house and I’m desperately trying to buy a new one before I have to move out – a task which has proved more difficult and stressful than I’d anticipated.  As a result I’ve struggled to find the time and headspace to record a new interview for you, so instead I’m bringing one back from the vault! This episode is from my first season back in 2018 – a time when ukulele players could safely go to crowded festivals and hang out together.  When I arranged this interview at the Central Coast Ukulele Festival I had no idea how influential my guests were.  In the three years since, I have lost count of the number of times people I’ve interviewed have said how these two ukulele players had inspired and helped them – not just Australian players, but people from across the world. Please enjoy this classic episode with Mark Jackson and Jane Jelbart. ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES: In today’s episode I chat to Jane Jelbart and Mark Jackson, who performed with the Ukastle Ukestra at the Central Coast Ukulele and Folk Festival in August this year.  Mark and Jane play their rendition of “I’ll be Your San Antone Rose” by Susanna Clark. More about Mark and Jane, including their Ukestration manual, can be found at The Sum of the Parts. This episode was recorded at the Central Coast Ukulele and Folk Festival.

I’ve talked to a lot of overseas players recently so I figured it was time to bring back some Australian content!  I have a chat to Sugarman Slim, a Sydney-based musician who combines ukulele with bass riffs in a way that will make you want to jump up and dance!  He plays some fantastic songs written by his daughter, and tells us about his small, mobile rehearsal space.  Enjoy!
