Lou Armer || Musician, Blogger, and community Radio Host

Lou and I have conversed for perhaps three or four years now. As I started out learning a standard GCEA ukulele I thought blogging would be a good way to keep track of all of the cool things, like song sites, that I could find on the internet. I was also always looking for interesting photos and would occasionally find that Lou and I shared the same interests. I just discovered that Lou has a new blog and the recent "Fail!" post has photos of Lou with her mini-f-holed-bari-uke.

I took the liberty of using some info from Lou's blog "About" page,
Lou is a singer, songwriter and musician based in Manchester, England. She is currently recording her debut solo EP. Primarily known as a vocalist and ukulele player, Lou also plays saxophone, guitar and keyboards. She also sings and plays with Paula Darwish & The Country & Eastern Band, performing songs in Turkish, Kurdish, Arabic and English. The band recently returned from a tour of Turkey and regularly perform all over the UK. Lou is also the voice of the Uke Hunt podcast, which she produces for Ukulele Hunt, the number one ukulele website. With over eight years experience in community radio, Lou is a seasoned broadcaster. She specialises in music programming covering jazz, weird shit, folk, world, blues, experimental, leftfield and more recently, the ukulele. She is also the Station Manager of North Manchester FM.

  1. Thanks for the feature, Jeff! Lots of new uke tunes coming in my Song of the Week project (even if the first two were on guitar...!).
