“Catch Up” more complex than a condiment!

Oh My Goodness! There is sooooo much to say! And soooo much, to show! So now that I have a website I feel obligated to share what has been going on in the last few years of Helen Keller’s Ukulele! I think the easiest way is to keep a blog of current posts interspersed with past happenings. It may be a little confusing for the first few months, but what the heck! Perhaps I will title them “Retro Posts” or just number them “Retro #1, #2, etc…

So now I am here. What to say? What is there to see or hear? Tons! Bear with me while I do my best in navigating a world of living.

Love, HKU


This March I travelled to Chicago. My good friend Chris Darby (folkster from “Them Damn Kids“) was very kind and set up a songwriter showcase at Cafe Mustache for me. Some lovely and haunting and funny songwriters also played before and after. It was packed with people. A great looking crowd, very stylish! The cafe was filled with an eclectic mix of tables chairs and knick knacks. There were mustaches everywhere. Ralph, one of the co-owners was a taciturn doll and super handsome and nice.  I felt that I played the strongest set ever and returned to my table with Chris and Georgi to get lost in the sounds of the ukulele played by Ryan Suzuka. I even lent him a battery mid set, his died! Here are some pics.  I didn’t get enough of the cafe, sorry. But I was able to shoot some on a walk with Chris, coming back from the Ralph Stanley concert he took me to as his guest…
