There’s a growing nationwide interest in ukuleles, and Sonoma County is no different, with at least six active clubs. Calling themselves the Ukulelians, members from those groups met Monday at Finley Community Center in Santa Rosa for a holiday-themed singalong and potluck dinner. The group played everything from selections by the late Leonard Cohen to “Frosty the Snowman.”
