It’s about drugs… are you kidding me with all that stuff about cute kiddies paintings.
Now go and take some and listen to Dan and his magic ukulele.
Dan Scanlan has been playing ukulele since 1961. His college roommate gave him the moniker "Cool Hand Uke." He leads the 30-member Strum Bums ukulele orchestra in Grass Valley CA and The Enablers swing trio. In 1998 he returned the ukulele to its ancestral home of Madeira Island, Portugal, in a project that reunited the ukulele with the rajão and braguinha that included a performance at the Lisbon World’s Fair. He is an ardent workshop presenter, has taught thousands, and lectures on the history and lore of the ukulele.
