  • Uke Magazine Awards

    Uke Magazine, in association with gotaukulele.com launched it’s inaugural Uke Magazine Awards in 2016 by asking it’s readers to nominate and then vote for their favourite ukulele artists and brands across a number of categories. The results were announced in Issue 9 of Uke Magazine this week and we are very happy to say that we were voted ‘Best UK Ukulele Artist’ and ‘Best Ukulele Live Act’.

    As wonderful as it is to receive recognition from the public and fellow ukulele players it is more satisfying to see such a thriving, talented and varied ukulele scene in the UK. A scene that Uke magazine showcases in every edition. As the magazine’s Editor Matt Warnes explains “These awards were designed to help celebrate just some of the talented acts and great brands in the UK’s ukulele world and further afield. The winners and nominees represent just a small part of that ukulele scene, all of which should be celebrated for the impact that music has on our lives.”

    Rather than produce trophies Matt donated the cost to the musicians charity of choice and we were very happy to pledge the donation to Radio Lollipop. An international children’s charity who provide care, comfort, play and entertainment to children in hospital.
