As part of our occasional series, Pennsylvania Music Makers, WPSU’s Kristine Allen visits a group of folks in Altoona who get a lot of joy out of four little strings.

Steve, Mike, and a bunch of our strummers were interviewed by Kristine Allen of WPSU during the January 2014 Uke jam. Be sure to listen!


The Allegheny Ukulele Kollective was started by a Penn State professor who wanted to give local ukulele players a chance to get together to learn and perform.  On today's show, club member Mike Holzer joins us, along with several other members of the group, to talk about the club, the popularity of ukuleles and an upcoming event to celebrate the instrument.


The Allegheny ukes went on Central PA Live to talk about the ukulele and to plug the Ukulele soiree and Uke Petting Zoo!


The Allegheny Ukes submitted this entry to the This Land is Your Land Project.

The smell of the paper masks still burn my nostrils when I play this song. Enjoy!
