The first time we met June, our meeting hostess, was at the Paul Hemmings Uketet show last summer. During the performance it came out that Paul was once a local, attending school and working in the music store here.
He's also an energetic and enthusiastic instructor at ukulele festivals. If you ever get a chance to hear his group play or to take a class from him, grab it.
Here he plays The Beatle's Birthday with characteristic liveliness. By strange coincidence, most of us were born in spring; but this goes out especially to June, turning 80 today and a ukulele player for more than 60 years!
