Canberra musician strums to a worldwide audience

Multi-instrumentalist Garry Owen was involved with several music groups before the COVID-19 emergency.

He’s now leading ukulele groups in Canberra and further afield via live YouTube streaming, and they’re open to everyone.

He recently contacted ukulele groups in New York City and presented a 90-minute ‘strumalong’ session with words, chords and music.

In this interview, Garry Owen describes how he set up virtual ukulele sessions, and offers advice for others wishing to present material online.
