Stephen Hawksworth

Stephen Hawksworth is a teacher who has developed song arrangements for a number of different ukulele and music groups. He plays with the Grand Old Uke of York as well as Hawkylele.

He started playing guitar as a teenager, then "progressed" to ukulele in his thirties when his brother, Philip, gave him a Stagg soprano ukulele. After a few months of bemusement, Stephen started to enjoy strumming his new instrument so much that he bought another one, then another one, and so on....(sound familiar!?) 

Stephen now has a small collection of different ukuleles, usually playing the baritone ukulele with the Grand Old Uke of York.
