George Formby
« on: May 21, 2008, 02:55:26 AM »

As you may know, George was a great fan of the Lancastrian comedian and ukelele player extraordinare George Formby. Well I stumbled across this page on a ukelele site about his attendance of Formby conventions in the 90's. It includes a ram link to George singing 'In My Little Snapshot Album'

Sorry if this has been posted up before, but I thought it might interest you all. I thinks its a fascinating curio.

Thanks for the link! I saw this ages ago, but it's nice to have it accessible here on the forum. :)

Love the song he does on the link. You don't often hear Harrison encouraging a singalong.
