Video: Look ma, three hands! James Hill at NJ Uke Fest

By Kevin Coughlin

James Hill is so advanced on the ukulele that he’s run out of things to play with two hands.

So he tried a three-handed solo over the weekend, at the New Jersey Uke Festival in Whippany.

He got a hand (literally) from Erin McGrane, a.k.a. Penny of the duo Victor & Penny.  Their legerdemain appears toward the end of the video above.

Of course, Hill still manages pretty well with the mitts  he was born with, as you can see in the videos below.
