Amy Nelson and Cathy Guthrie marched in Austin, and joined millions of of other Americans and people around the world at the Woman’s March today. I rode down to Denver with a neighbor, and joined over 100,000 folks in Denver. It was exciting and hopeful. I had to wear my Willie’s Reserve hat.

Folk Uke has a new album, “Star F*cker”, and here’s a video from the album.
STARF*CKER, Folk Uke’s third studio endeavor, is a constellation consummation brimming with what fans have come to love about this duo: ethereal harmonies accompanied by razor-sharp lyrics. This latest effort presents eight new tracks of cosmic clarity.
Starf*cker • BJ to a DJ • Sweet Talker • California Stars • Crowd Control • Wear You Down • All I Want For Christmas • Mic Stand
Folk Uke was thrilled to have the all-star band of their dreams contributing:
Mike Stinson on drums, Randy Weeks on lead guitar, and Marc Perlman ofThe Jayhawks on bass. Micah Nelson of “Insects vs Robots” played Charango on a couple tracks. Some obscure artists, Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson, played guitar on several tracks. This might make them famous.
Amy said, “Other highlights include Luke’s improvisational vocals on “Mic Stand”, and Dad’s vocals on “Sweet Talker”, where he drops the singular f-bomb of the otherwise radio friendly song. This will likely to be the most popular track. We made a clean radio edit that isn’t near as good.”
“It’s pretty much a family album. Give or take some subject matter. We hope you like it.”
Starf*cker, Folk Uke’s new concept album, features Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson’s ethereal harmonies woven with both heartfelt and occasionally indecent lyrics.
For this release, Folk Uke is supported by the all-star band of their dreams: Mike Stinson on drums; Randy Weeks on electric guitar; Marc Perlman of The Jayhawks on bass, and with special appearances by Micah Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson.
Our new album Starfucker comes out in 2 weeks – September 16th
