Lucky studied the vocal arts for seven years, and has a golden voice. Don Baggett, Sr. was a great mentor to him. One day he was inspired to pick up a stringed instrument to accompany himself, and never looked back! He practices every day with great dedication.
Lucky Mulligan plays a Kala cedar topped, acacia paneled, mahogany necked, concert ukulele with inset pegs, and a very warm tone… and is definitely not being paid by Kala (based in Petaluma, CA) to advertise their extremely high quality ukuleles (but has availability as a brand ambassador).
Lucky has bad knees, due to an old accident and following illness and other complications, so he does not haul around or play larger instruments, like six string guitars.
