Happiness as Anarchy #295: Melbourne Ukulele Festival

It is always a pleasure to play the Melbourne Ukulele Festival. I wondered as I headed down to the city on Friday whether it was a good idea or not, given there’s a nasty little virus high-speed globetrotting right now. I guess I’ll never know the answer to that question, but I am awfully glad I went. I played a lovely set of Leonard Cohen with Pete Daffy, gave a workshop to a room full of delightful and appreciative people, heard some great bands, was billeted with a lovely family, and most importantly, felt the love of the beautiful ukulele world. Thanks for sharing the music and the love! It makes me very happy that the last gig I’ll play for a while was so warm.
