Hi Jim, That's going to be some Ukulele Festival with Paul McCartney. He is still a crowd favorite, and has always been one of my Favorite Beatles.

Jim, I have a friend that plays the baratone uke. It is a wonderfully versatile instrument. I am guessing McCartney will not be there.

That's cute, I love Paul McCartney, but when I think of a ukulele I think of Don Ho.
