Recently nominated for the Best Folk Album GRAMMY Award, Ukulele Songs is a collection of original songs and covers performed by Vedder on ukulele. Also released last May was Water on the Road, a live-concert DVD directed by Brendan Canty of Fugazi and Christoph Green featuring performances from Vedder’s August 2008 solo tour engagements at Washington, D.C.’s Warner Theatre.
