Miss Joni, a Folk School students, NUVO writer and local cheerleading mom, has taken up the pen to write a monthly NUVO Blog about the ukulele. Hurray for Miss Joni!
All Things Ukulele: Summer of uke
If every month could be like the month of June, this writer is pretty sure Ukuleles could change the world.
By the time I moved to Noblesville with my family three years ago, I was pretty sure I’d already morphed from a gallery-hopping Indianapolis socialite to a rarely-goes-anywhere-without-her-kids-gee-when’s-the-last-time-she-colored-her-hair-type Mom. I thought that the move to the suburbs of Hamilton County signified the final nail in the coffin of my formerly-fabulous life. But, fast forward one year, and there’s me—kids in tow, of course—sitting cross-legged on the floor of The Wild, clutching a cheap ukulele in my nervous hands, learning my very first chords from the Blue Stone Folk School’s Geoff Davis. And that was the beginning of a new passion and perspective in the life of Miss Joni.
