As the year 2010 comes to a close, it is time for me to look back and reflect on another amazing ukulele year.

Before doing just this, let me wish you all a very happy and enriching New Year 2011.

I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank all the readers who have subscribed to Ukulele & Languages. Seeing my growing number of subscribers is a big encouragement to carry on.

Today will be the last post of the year 2009. I’ve therefore decided to review all the great many things that have happened on Ukulele & Languages this year. If you are new to this website, here is a chance to find out about its contents.

First and foremost, I’d like to thank Al from Uke Hunt as my ukulele learning would have stopped in its tracks had it not been for the huge amount of quality information available on his website and for his e-books which are perfect for people learning on their own.  Al‘s support all through the year has really been invaluable and I am extremely grateful for all the great help without which Ukulele & Languages would never have come to exist.

For those of you who are new to this blog, I’d like to inform you that my posts were written in French until the 27th of April 2009, around the time I started thinking about what my blog should focus on. Up until this date, my website was only keeping track of the different discoveries I made about the ukulele world.

I discovered Patti Plinko and her Boy at the Paris Uke Fest. this year and liked her performance so much I bought her new EP, Bohemian Suicide.

The EP consists of 6 tracks (mostly on ukulele and guitar but also featuring a violin) amounting to a playing time of about 30 minutes. The highlights of the EP are some of the titles that were performed at the Paris Uke Fest., “Hey Ho! Deepest of the Darkest” and “Whisky Six“.

Hey Ho ! Deepest of the Darkest, the first track of the EP and probably my favourite,  sets the tone in an exhilarating  performance where Patti’s voice playfully switches from slow and languorous to roaring with an impressive display of energy.

Here she is with her Boy, performing the song at the Paris Uke Fest, on the 4th of July 2009.
