1st Listen [Dec 2014]

Inspiration. December’s “1st Listen” offers two covers that take us back to early influences. For me, the songs of one band made me want to play guitar in the first place; the songs of the other band made me want to continue. Now, of course, we feature any old musical instrument—guitars, keyboards, percussion, voices, and, this time around, a baritone ukulele, a recent generous gift. Which brings me full circle to the inspiration of the first instrument I ever played (40 years ago!): my grandfather’s jazz-age banjo ukulele. PB
