All I want for Christmas is uke

Dec 17, 2015

When you think of holiday music, the ukulele probably isn’t the first instrument that comes to mind unless you’re a member of LAUGH, the Lansing Area Ukulele Group. Current State's Katie Cook drops by their most recent “Strum and Sing” to talk to some members of the group and hear them play holiday tunes together.

It’s the holiday season, and for some local musicians, the best way to celebrate is to make music together. The Lansing Area Ukulele Group gathered over the weekend for their Holiday Strum and Sing.

Current State's Katie Cook is a uke enthusiast herself, so she stopped by Sir Pizza in Old Town Lansing to check it out.
