Then there are people like Zahra Lowzley.
Please watch and listen and prepare to be amazed...
This was N'Ukefest 2014, Nantwich, England, at the weekend. I wasn't able to be there, had to be somewhere else... and I know I missed a fabulous weekend, of which this was undoubtedly the highlight... Wow and double-wow....
That may have been Zahra's first festival appearance, but I'm very sure it won't be her last!

Ain't She Sweet, by Milton Ager and Jack Yellen, published 1927 - that makes the song the same age as my Gibson UB2 banjo-uke....
