Double guitars, man & wife, banjo and ukuleles; two sublime voices and hot strings. Romantic, funny, authentic, beautiful. Good medicine with fresh songs and old stories. The music of Kate & Steve delivers the real deal in a push-button world. They have appeared as special guests on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and won the Grand Prize from Music2Life in Kerrville, Texas for songs that make a difference with Power's song "Travis John."

Twenty-five years of teaching people their first chords at Artichoke Music in Portland, Oregon, and a lifetime in concert as folksingers, Kate & Steve were inspired to create the Ukalaliens method for teaching people to play and sing and took it to the road in October 2009.

Ukalaliens, Steve & Kate have brought their fun and simple method and lifelong experience with a trunk full of dozens of Kala ukuleles to teach the uninitiated how to play and sing. Their mission to mentor beginners is growing musicality regionally and through their Ukalaliens Songbook and "You Can Play the Uke!" Homespun DVD's, around the globe. Reputed as the Johnny Appleseeds of ukulele in America, the Ukalaliens are opening doors for thousands who never dreamed they could learn to play a musical instrument.

"Sometimes we don't know what we have until we've lost it; other times we don't know what we've been missing until it enters our lives. Such was the case when Kate Power and Steve Einhorn introduced me to my first ukulele. My son and I have become addicted to this little musical powerhouse. Thank you, Quality Folk!" - Carter Brey, Principal Cellist, New York Philharmonic

"The Ukalaliens Songbook (A Beginner's Guide To Ukulele Fun) by Kate Power and Steve Einhorn is a charmer. Handcrafted by the authors, the book/CD boasts delightful illustrations by Steve and performances by both Steve and Kate. The songs are a blend of well-known traditional tunes and the author's originals all taught via the text and patient encouragements on the CD. A small and happy book for a small and happy instrument." - Jumpin' Jim Beloff, Flea Market Music
