Like everyone in the worldwide ukulele community we were stunned and saddened to hear of the passing of John King. Not only was John one of the premiere ukulele virtuosos in the world, he was the finest player when it came to the classical repertoire. He was also the preeminent ukulele historian and played a critical role in refining the text for the second edition of my book The Ukulele– A Visual History.

One of the most remarkable books Flea Market Music has published is John's classical ukulele songbook/CD he arranged for our masters series. It is a great example of how limitless the ukulele can be in the right hands.

I had the pleasure of spending time with John at various uke fests and events over the years and came to appreciate his keen intellect, aloha spirit and wonderful sense of humor. Aloha John from Jim & Liz Beloff and Phyllis and Dale Webb.
