Live Ukulele at Book Expo America!

A big mahalo to Markie, Nicky, and Sean (a.k.a. Ikeda Katsu), who drove all the way from Boston to NYC to perform at UH Press’ booth at Book Expo America! The guys played two songs, “Over the Rainbow” and “Higher and Higher,” to promote Jim Tranquada and John King’s The ‘Ukulele: A History.

Mahalo also to Sue Wilhite of East West Bookshop for the video!

UPDATE: Another video of Ikeda Katsu at BEA performing “Higher and Higher” but this time . . . the guys are sitting down! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6445ONInMpk
