Memphis Ukulele Band

Season 11, Episode 11 of 13

As its name suggests, the Memphis Ukulele Band is a ukulele ensemble based in the birthplace of rock and roll and the home of the blues. The ukulele is an instrument whose capacity to express a broad range of emotion make it one of the most intimate, evocative and underrated stringed instruments. It's fitting, then, that Memphis - also intimate, evocative, certainly underrated - is the setting for this magical collaboration. In this episode, the Memphis Ukulele Band leverages the charms of their featured instrument across myriad genres as they perform several songs, including "You Keep Me Hanging On" and "Can't Help Falling in Love."
