Stephen Beauregard began crafting handmade guitars in 1986. When the desire to play the great summer songs of the 1920s and 1930 hit, Beauregard made the transition to the ukulele. He brought one of his custom instruments on a family camping trip to play around the campfire. A husband and wife were so impressed with the ukulele, they offered to buy it on the spot. Fast forward a few years later, and Snowshoe Ukulele Company was born. Producer Dave Fraser visits Beauregard in his shop and shares his story.
