Now That’s Not Tiny Tim

Growing up I heard Tiny Tim play “Tip Toe Through the Tulips” on television. Maybe it was on Rowin and Martin’s Laugh In. Yes, for some that will signal my age. The high pitched “tinny” voice accompanied by the odd sounding ukulele was something of a novelty.

On our recent trip to Honolulu for my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration, we walked along Kalakalua Avenue. Street artists of all types lined the street. We happened upon this musical artist playing an amped Ukelele near the International Market Place. Just before I videoed him playing a rendition of “Hotel California” he had just finished singing a cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” This wasn’t Tiny Tim’s ukelele.

Enjoy – we did.

  1. That is crazy! Pretty cool. So if a guitar is an axe, would this be a hatchet?

    1. That is funny. You may need to get that into the urban dictionary.
