Strings And Songs

My Father emailed me this morning with some good news that he had started practicing on his Ukelele again. My oldman is a very talented string player. He plays the Guitar, Banjo, Ukelele, Balalaika, and the Concertina. Which is not part of the string family, although that does add a string to his bow. No pun intended. The video above is of Nick Lucas in 1944. This song too made popular in the 60s by the unique and somewhat controversial falsetto of Tiny Tim.
