Growth In Sales Heralds Ukelele Resurgence
The ukulele has long-struggled with its image -- it can blame Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" for that. But lately the diminutive instrument is making a major comeback.
Last year, Amanda Palmer released an EP of Radiohead covers performed on the uke. Today, Eddie Vedder dropped his second solo album, aptly titled "Ukulele Songs." Even Taylor Swift is strumming a few tunes on a uke on her Speak Now World Tour. Suddenly ukes are cool.
