The ukulele has been popping up in a lot of pop music from Hawaiian singer Iz to Jack Johnson to Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz.
It's been growing in popularity in Montreal too. A few years ago, five ukulele players formed the Montreal Ukulele Club. Now dozens of musicians join them for jam sessions twice a month. Tonight they'll be part of the show at the third annual Uke Festival that they created.
Claire Elissalde and Anthony Pham are two of the original five members of the Montreal Ukulele Club. They join our summer host Pierre Landry, ukes in hand.

St.Joseph will be honoured in a delicious way tomorrow in Little Italy. For Italian Week, this year's bake-off challenge is a traditional pastry usually made for St-Joseph's day. It's called a zeppola and in its most basic form, it consists of a light and airy doughnut filled with sweetened ricotta. Italian bakeries from Montreal, Laval and beyond are participating in the challenge.
Jennifer Chiazzese's family owns and runs the Montebello Bakery in Montreal North.
Montebello won last year's Italian Week bake-off for lobster tail pastry, also known as sfogliatelle.
