A New Book on Norwegian Herding Calls
"Mix together members of a former folk rock band who have been smitten with the bubbly, happy sound of the ukulele, with friends from the jazz, classical, and early music worlds. Mix in a good helping of original tunes with covers from the “golden ages” of the ukulele. Season with some classical and world music melodies. Serve cool and fresh.
You’ll end up with something similar to Ukulele Drive".
Bob Berg, Julie Elhard, Peggy Larson, Emily Wright, Doug Wright, and Rocky Mjos .
