The ukulele has enjoyed great popularity since it was developed in Hawaii in the 19th century, and Las Cruces now boasts its own ensemble, the Las Cruces Ukes. Musicians Cheryl Fallstead and Bob Hull – with ukulele in hand – came to the KRWG studios to talk about a special weekend coming up with visiting ukulele artist Mark Baker, who will perform a concert with the group and teach two workshops in Las Cruces. Fallstead and Hull also talked about the history of the ukulele and the origins of their local ensemble, and Hull provided some musical entertainment.
