Ukeleles at Hitherto
Continuing this section’s strange ongoing fascination with George Formby’s lucky charms . . . one of our favourite independent shop/gallery/happening places is staging an exhibition of ukuleles customised by Glasgow artists as part of Celtic Connections. Each ukulele has been designed with a musician in mind, and at 7pm on Friday 8 February, various Glasgow musos, including Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake, will be settling down for a good old mini-banjo twang. Or maybe just a ukulele gig.
Hitherto, Ingram Street, Glasgow. See www.hithertoshop.co.uk for full details.
