Hey, fellow uke player! Did you know 99.9% of visitors to this site will scroll past this message without making a contribution? Many plan to pledge later, but then forget. So we're asking you to give just $2 (or whatever you can afford) right now.

Here’s a video that is certain to put a spring in your step and bring a smile to your face! The versatile, long-tenured, folk/rock/pop (mostly) acoustic duo known collectively as Ryanhood—Ryan Green and Cameron Hood—have put down their guitars for this truly wonderful mandolin (Ryan) and uke (Cameron) version of Dickey Betts’ infectious Allman Brothers instrumental classic “Jessica” (which originally appeared on the group’s 1973 album Brothers and Sisters). Would it be asking too much to hear a mando/uke take on the Allmans’ “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” too? Enjoy! Dancing is encouraged! —Blair Jackson


Thanks to Kristie Cunningham for the video tip!
