Thanks to Jon Bennett for letting us know about this upcoming workshop. It’s some distance away but I shall pass on the info nevertheless for anyone who might be interested:
Hi, I’m Jon Bennett (www.ukuleleoxford.com) and we’re running a residential Ukulele Workshop Weekend at Halsway Manor, Nr Crowcombe, Somerset, from 4-6 July. It’s a beautiful old Tudor mansion/hotel with great food and accommodation. We’ll be running technical classes as well as singing sessions, suitable for all ages. And really not expensive at all! Have a look at http://www.halswaymanor.org.uk/ for more details or contact me at Jon.Bennett@dsl.pipex.com 01865 769206
Thanks to all the ukes (and their owners) who came along on 10th March. It was an excellent night and I hope to see everybody back for more. I’ve updated the list of dates for future meetings until the end of the summer. Easter Monday is a Ukearist night again this year but I don’t know the dates for the April/May bank holidays. Hopefully there will be enough bodies around over each of the long weekends to keep the meetings going without interruption.
Remember to bring along some copies of any songs you want to play. Alternatively if you have any suggestions for songs, or any other ideas about the meetings, or any questions, you can leave a comment here or email me directly using the Contact Form if you prefer.
Somebody left their green Korg tuner after the meeting on 10th February. I’ve got it for safe keeping.
It’s business as usual on the 27th. We’ll be having a slightly belated tribute to the late great Phil Everly, so you may wish to investigate these:
Crying in the rain (I think we did this for our Rainy Night)
These are only suggestions. If you have any other ideas or have any new songs to try out, then by all means post them here or bring them along on the night.
Please note that the meeting on 13th January has been cancelled. The first meeting of 2014 will now be on 27th January. Sorry for any inconvenience, and apologies also to any new members or visitors who were planning on coming along. I hope you can come on the 27th instead.
The first meeting of 2014 is on 13th January. Hope to see you then….
The next meeting is of course the last one before the Christmas and New Year break. As always we shall be moderately indulging in drinks and nibbles whilst stumbling through a selection of seasonal songs. If you don’t have a copy of the usual Christmas song book, you can download it here.
I’ll be updating the calendar for 2014 over the holidays. The first meeting after the New Year is on 13th January.
