Lynne Butler: new year and new playlists

Thanks to Lynne Butler (UK), who sends new year greetings and the playlist for her 'Butler's Boudoir Bluegrass' radio show (see the EBB's separate 'Radio playlists' post).

This week's programme in the 'Lynne Butler’s Eurograss' series features part 1 of 'Rise of the ukulele' (see the EBB for 22 Dec. 2011); part 2 will follow next week.*

EBB editor's note: Ukulele enthusiasts should check out the website of Ukulele Ireland, especially for a two-part video documentary on a ukulele festival in Ireland in August 2011. The documentary was made by Alice Toner, designer of the Bluegrass Ireland Blog. Alice is also a niece of Ireland's 'godfather of bluegrass', Niall Toner.
