Welcome Ukulele Fans!

Howlin’ Hobbit plays old-skool jazz, hokum, novelty tunes and original songs in those styles on ukulele—and sometimes other instruments—with verve, skill, laughs and fun!

For example, a song co-written with K.W. Todd called Jitterbug Blues… have a listen!

Howlin’ is a veteran of many years busking plus appearances at clubs, festivals, burlesque and cabaret shows and other venues, both solo and with a variety of bands.

Hobbit loves to do House Concerts! (Either solo or with one or more of his talented friends.) If you live in the Puget Sound area and you’d like to host a house concert, drop a line to [email protected] and we’ll talk! If you’re wondering, “What the heck is a house concert?”, you can click here to find out.


Howlin’ Hobbit has been playing music and singing since grade school. That was somewhere back in the dark ages.


Upcoming Howlin’ Hobbit appearances, both solo and with friends. You too can hire Howlin’ Hobbit, just get in touch and we’ll talk!
