Philip Pullman meets the Uke meister in Oxford

Ukeleles in OxfordI WAS proceeding in a westerly direction when I spotted a photo opportunity and a sound bite to boot. Outside a theatre in Oxford, a juxtaposition presented itself.

And as you all know, I cannot resist a juxtaposition, of whatever type it may be.

Yes, it was Philip Pullman (pictured left) with one of the founding members of the band – the Ukulele Orchestra of the UK with  Will Grove-White (pictured, right).  Will was playing at the New Theatre and apparently Philip is a fan of the ukulele and I think asked Will to sign his rather wonderful book about the ukulele for him.

We did overhear Philip say how much Will’s book had helped him in his ukulele playing.

Pure fantasy? I think not. I was there.
