Birthday, played by Paul Hemmings

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!
