Ukulele US : Tripping Lily

28 2009

39 languages down the line and I still haven’t got a post about English US ukulele songs
Although the language challenge is not very high, as US ukulele videos abound on the net, I have chosen a great band to represent the US Ukulele world.

I’ve discovered Tripping Lily in this post on Uke Hunt and after checking their other videos on YouTube I bought their album Ukulily.
And I am glad I did. It is a real treat to my ears and I’ve been humming their songs for the past 3 weeks.
Tripping Lily, from Cape Cod, are now working on their next CD which is going to be sent out for mastering on July the 18th. I can’t wait to hear their new songs.

40. English (US)
Here are a few videos of Tripping Lily. Enjoy their lovely vocal harmonies!

First, Tripping Lily at the NY Ukulele Festival (May 2009) performing “It’s alright“, with Hawaiian Mihana dancing.

Next another song from the album Ukulily played at the Passim Campfire Festival : Guilty

And part of a another song from the Ukulily album performed at the Passim Club with Victoria Vox doing the voice trumpet. The video unfortunately stops before the end of the song called Love Life . Don’t hesitate to purchase the album to get the full version !

Finally, if you wish to learn how to play It’s Alright, you can watch this video of Demitrius playing a slower (really??) version of the song with close ups of his playing to help you out. It didn’t work for me, it’s far too difficult but I am no reference in the ukulele playing field so give it a try !

    Yay! I’ve finally found anehtor piece that I can play. Before this, all I could play was smoke on the water, Ode to joy and twinkle twinkle little star.
