Last week was a whirlwind of activity! Our four guests arrived on Monday and put in five wonderful days at the bench assembling and customizing their own soprano ukuleles.
The cast of players:
Chris McCarthy – Educator, Wine Stomper, Vegetable Picker and Cubicle Jockey from Boston. Chris drove straight in, pulled out his bike and parked the car for the entire week!
Tom Duncan – Music Teacher, Multi-Instrumentalist, Luthier and Harp Dude. One of Indy’s own.
Thomas Richardson – L.A. Hipster turned I.U. Folklorist. We’re not sure whether he was there to build a uke or study folks who built ukes. It doesn’t matter!
Michael “Kentucky Mike” Wilson – Mickey Mouse lovin’ High School Librarian and all around ukulele guy. this is Mike’s third trip to Noblesville for ukulele goodness!
Fritz the Shop Dog – Fritz expressed an interst in becoming an official shop dog and mascot. We auditioned him and we are thrilled to report that he has been awarded the job!
Bruce Neckar – Visiting artist.
Phoebe Davis – Daily visitor. She kept the discussion lively!
Geoff Davis – The Instructor and Director of Blue Stone Folk School. (A minor player)
