When it comes to ukulele magazines there’s not a huge selection available in the UK. In fact, until recently there weren’t any. One man that spotted this gap in the market is Matt Warnes of Omega Music. Matt got to work in his spare time and started UKE magazine to fill the void.
Uke magazine is a quarterly production that Matt puts together with his wife Diane. For a largely two person production, it’s incredibly polished and you can tell that Matt is clearly a man that has a huge passion for all things ukulele.
Every issue has exclusive tab from some great ukulele artists (the current issue has tab from Phil Doleman and Ben Rouse – where else do you get that?), interviews, readers letters, instrument reviews and a whole lot more. If you’re like me and still prefer reading things in print form then it could just be the magazine for you.
Uke clocks in at £4.90 an issue and is available worldwide. Those of you wanting an annual subscription can grab it for £18 for 4 issues. It can be bought either from the supporting site over at http://worldofukes.co.uk/uke-magazine-shop/ or if you prefer through Amazon UK.
