Wendy DeWitt & Joe Tate

I met Joe Tate when he was sitting behind a small fold-out table with a pile of his Ukulele Baby books and his beautiful Martin Baritone Ukulele at the Wine Country Ukulele Festival in Napa a couple of years ago. Last week, I brought my friend Chris Evanoff down to the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz to take a class from Fred Sokolov. As we took our hour long drive and listened to a Johnny Cash / Willie Nelson CD paying special attention to Willie's sweet guitar sounds, Chris told me that he knew "the legendary" Joe Tate from when he was a youngster growing up in Mill Valley. I see a flyer from Joe every week and like to post the ones where he has that Martin Bari in the flyer.
