Have A Tim Minchin Christmas!

Merry Christmas everybody (other winter celebrations available)! I was pleased to spot a couple of the excellent long-haired, bearded, bare-foot Australian musician, Tim Minchin’s numbers in this year’s Ukulele Wednesdays Xmas Songbook.  Why not hop over to page 37 to enjoy this jolly little number Woody Allen Jesus? And while you’re there, read about donating old ukes, volunteering to entertain for Crisis or even giving some goods or money to a homeless charity or foodbank. Thanks.

This is what happens when you receive a mysterious email from the 4-Stringed Secret Service asking if you’re interested in taking part in a ukulele flash mob at a secret London location:

As usual, I managed to secrete myself near the back, under the right hand lion.  I particularly like the photo of the Heritage Warden in the set of pics from melpressmen on Demotix.

Official YouTube now out – see if you can spot me!
