Manitoba Hal covers Tom Waits with his ukulele

Manitoba Hal does Tom Waits….ukulele style! The best part is that it doesn’t sound hokey. It’s a good cover version and an excellent display of how serious an instrument the ukulele really can be. The instrument has seen a resurgence in popularity over the last number of years, although it appears to be waning. This guy plays the ukulele for real, in an honest, genuine way, which makes him worth listening to. And, this is a cool little video as well.
