Uncle Uke (aka: Robert Yates) spent his formative years growing up on the island of Oahu and began playing ukulele at 9 years of age.  At 10 he began playing Guitar, studying with a young man who was studying under the legendary Andres Segovia. After High School; Uncle Uke studied Music Education at Columbus College (now Columbus University) in Columbus Georgia and began studying guitar building in his spare time. After Graduation he began raising a family and life seemed to quickly get in the way of his musical passions, but he still found time to perform when he could.  When he retired from the business world Uncle Uke began playing and performing on a more serious basis and eight years ago began building instruments again as part of his retirement passions and HUG Ukulele was born. Believing that quality does not have to be expensive, Uncle Uke has dedicated his efforts to making the HUG Ukulele line second to none in quality and playability.
