Jere Canote


"I love this uke! It sounds great! It plays like butter! It's the uke I reach for when I'm feeling creative! "


band(s): The Canote Brothers

Jere Canote is one half of the Canote Brothers, one of the best instructor/musician groups on the ukulele festival circuit. Here's a bit about them:

Years ago in a San Francisco Chinese restaurant, we received our favorite cookie fortune of all time. It was one word: TWINS! Since twin babyhood, we have taken advantage of our matching genetics: as Christmas elves tap dancing our way around a wishing well in the first grade, to our thirteen year stint as the affable radio side-kicks on NPR's Sandy Bradley's Potluck.

We are proud to think of ourselves as links in the chain of musical brother duets like the Stanley Brothers, the Blue Sky boys, Sam and Kirk Magee or the Everlys. But we are always amazed by the possibilities of a fiddle and a guitar, (and those genetically matched voices). While we have one foot firmly planted in the traditions of American Roots music, we certainly have an ear tuned to the novel and the quirky - as one reviewer put it, "Their songs all have the ring of cock-eyed classics!"
