Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Today I kept turning up at places that were closed! I went to two community centres that were both closed. I continue to have my seasons confused. There was a fun CBC radio documentary on about the ukuele on the radio to sing along to: Frank Faulk explores the passion for the ukulele in his documentary The Gospel According to Uke.

When I was in the Wired Writing Program in Banff, Anne Fleming played the ukukele most nights along with Ingrid who played the guitar.

It was a fun ditty of a documentary, and I have to say the players all had fine singing voices, but that was probably nothing to do with the instrument they played under their armpits. The ukulele does remind me a bit of playing the washing board with an old stick.
