Artist of the day: East Pasco/Hernando Ukulele Club




So you like ukulele music, huh? Join the club.

No, seriously: Join the East Pasco/Hernando Ukulele Club. Chyrisse Tabone heads up the ukulele group, which grows from a handful to a houseful when northerners arrive for the winter. Experience ranges from beginners' unsure strumming to experts' fancy finger work.

Tabone attended a Tampa Bay Ukulele Society "get away" about a year ago and a love affair with ukuleles took hold. "Music is my love," said Tabone, a Dade City environmental scientist, who said music is her stress reliever.

"The ukulele makes people smile, and it's so easy you can learn to play in a couple of hours," said Tabone, adding that she learned to play her instrument from a Youtube video.
