uke

Cairns is the centre of the ukulele universe this weekend – with the 5th Cairns Ukulele Festival well underway.

Players of the four-stringed instrument have come to far north Queensland from around Australia and from faraway shores to celebrate an instrument that evokes the tropics more eloquently than any other. Tony Hillier takes a forward and backward look at the Cairns Ukefest.
