FRIDAY MUSIC: Sam Brown, by JD

Something different - I know I'm always saying that but this time it really is different. 

Sam is the daughter of Joe Brown, one of this country's pioneers of 'rock,n,roll' who began his career in the 1950s alongside Cliff Richard and Marty Wilde and many more who are mostly forgotten. What makes it different is her ukelele orchestra. I've tried counting the players on stage and there are 35 I think but it is clear they are having a great time. Music guaranteed to raise a smile!
"Sam Brown is a musician, songwriter, performer and recently, ukulele teacher from London UK. She currently lives in Dorset UK.

Born in October 1964, Sam has been ‘doing’ music from the age of 12.

She has worked as a backing vocalist, song writer and lead vocalist and has sold in excess of 3 million records. In the 1980/90’s she had her biggest hit Stop which was in the top ten."
